Please keep the original aspect ratios of old film
10 November 2014 | by stephenb-989-284152See all my reviews

Love the history behind this story and well written with accurate narration and primary source material. But still bothers me to see the old film footage from the 1930s and 1940s being cropped to fit into the program's 16x9 aspect ratio. I understand that the recent day interviews are recorded in HD 16x9 video but the cutaways to the B&W archival stock should keep their original 1:33:1 aspect ratio. Cropping old film footage only results in distortion and loss of great film quality. These 16mm and 35mm news reels were not cinemascope back then so why make them look like that today? Why not just colorize them altogether if the producers like to resort to quasi HD looking cropped image? I like HD wide aspect 1080p digital video don't get me wrong however also appreciate seeing the original film stock in its native 4x3 form if it was shot that way. Tired of seeing SD material trying to be passed off to look HD. It just don't work and looks bad and not respectful to the filmmaker who recorded the images many years ago with this documentary or any other for that matter.
