I was watching the 12 part , 6 hour 1962 Francois Truffaut's interview with Alfred Hitchcock on Youtube which was GREAT and you ALL should watch it. Hitchcock was speaking about "Vertigo" and the "Hitchcock Effect" which Hitchcock said took 15 years to make happen, Truffaut mentioned another effect he had used on a film after they talked about the crane shot in "Notorious" that involved a zoom while moving the camera to alleviate lens distortion at the beginning and end of the camera move. During this Hitchcock asked if Truffaut was shooting 'scope and Truffaut replied he was shooting "French 'scope" at the time which is a term I'm not familiar with . I'm wondering if by "French 'scope, he was talking about European Widescreen (1:66) or a different aspect ratio. Anyone ever hear of "French 'scope" ?
