Help me ID the lens in this shot

I THINK it's Anamorphic 28, 35, or 40mm. But, that doesn't explain why the horizontal squeeze looks so exaggerated on the sides of the frame, but not in the center. I originally thought it was cropped 14mm, but not so sure anymore. Can anyone provide some wisdom here?

And other sites, Shochiku Grandscope was basically CinemaScope, anamorphic lenses made by Baush & Lomb. You're just seeing some distortions in the lens, probably a 40mm or 50mm in this case.
Some telecine transfers will also add more squeeze to the sides of a frame in order to not have to use as much letterboxing to hold the image, though I don't think this is the case here.
