Diamonds is not a CinemaScope
14 December 2005 | by buchan99See all my reviews

The clip of Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend used in the doc is not an alternate CinemaScope take. It is the exact version lifted from the original Academy Ratio version of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. However, the doc was released as a Scope movie, and they zoomed-in on the 1.33 image to create a faux Scope version. Wish it were an alternate version, but sadly it is not... That said, the documentary is a lot of fun, especially in light of Rock Hudson's known public history today compared to that of 1963. It's also interesting watching Rock being manly by smoking while watching the clips - looks terribly effected from today's perspective. It does contain the clips from her unfinished film which has been released on DVD a while back.
