As far as I know, in 1970 (or around that time) 2.35 was ditched for 2.40. Reading the ASC manual, it is very clear that referring to anamorphic films as 2.35 is a common mistake. Therefore, I would like to know why DVD's are almost always 2.35 ratio and how can that be?
Are we seeing more than theatrically intended when we watch a film on DVD? I would assume the width isn't changing but there is an added height from 2.35 to 2.40.
If someone could shed some light on this discrepancy I would be most appreciative!
