For their St Patrick's Day 2016 evening showing, Ireland's TV3 broadcast a version with the MGM logo, instead of the original Distributor 20th Century Fox, making the blatant 20th Century Fox's CBS-Fox Video product placement, in the Video Store really obvious. Additionally, instead of a Widescreen HD version, as on the original cinema release, this same broadcast used a 3:4 academy ratio cropped version, that was shown, with vertical sidebars, as would have been seen cropped on earlier TV broadcasts and the original VHS Home Video version. Presumably a widescreen HD version was unavailable. See more
