With reference to 16mm or 35mm 'flat' prints.

I just wondered......does anybody know who would have been responsible for preparing cinemascope movies to full-frame flat printing at the lab.

Would it be the movie's director of photography, the camera operator, the editor or the labs technicians ?

I recently had to do a 4/3 panscan from a 2.35 feature film. Nobody wanted this, not the director, not the producer, not the DP and certainly not the lab people, but it was in the contract for the US distributor so it was done. We actually had to deliver an HDCAM SR pillarboxed to 1.33. A 16/9 letterbox would have been much more reasonable but still a compromise.
