My Fair Lady
Comparison between a original 70mm frame and Warner's DVD transfer
The picture of the original negative was taken from the My Fair Lady - Then and Now Documentation at 53:06, where a full 70mm frame from the main title is shown. The DVD transfer was made from a 35mm print of the restored version, which fitted the 70mm-Frame into the 2.35:1-Ratio by adding black mattes on the sides. On the DVD-Transfer the mattes were eliminated by stretching the picture to the sides of the 16:9-Frame.
|Original 70mm frame - 2.17:1||DVD Transfer - 2.38:1 (2.24:1 strechted)|
|70mm frame with overlaid corrected DVD transfer||DVD Transfer - 2.24:1 stretch-corrected|
