    Movie Il cacciatore di squali - The shark hunter

    I can safely say that "Il Cacciatore di Squali" was shot in open-matte based of these photos -



    The Polish TV airing was in 1.66:1 and I compared it to the MediaSet airing and you can clearly see that it is cropped. I also used the US VHS and combined it with the media set version to create a 1.37:1 frame (standard for every sound film frame). The MediaSet TV airings are open matte 1.33:1 and is missing image on the side and bottom to make it a complete 1:37:1 image. That's why when you crop the Italian TV airing, you can only get a 1.66:1 image. Here's to hoping the upcoming BluRay/DVD will present the film in its correct aspect ratio of 1.85:1.

    Ah sì? C'è un upcoming blu ray? E per chi esce?

    Who's going to release this dvd/blu ray you are talking about?

    The US label "RetroVision" spoke of a BluRay on their page (no other details yet sadly).

    Will it be a legit release or just a bootleg?

    Do you know who did they get the rights from?

    I sent them a mail earlier today and this was their response...

    "We are finishing negotiations with the proper rights holders in Italy and they have a negative that will be the source for the DVD and Blu-Ray. In regards to the aspect ratio, we only know that the film was shot in open-matte and the negative is most likely in open-matte as well. I cannot answer any further questions at this time until the rights holders have let me inspect the film."

    no, that's is where I got the name for the account (it's a reference to a boat in jaws). That was not best idea but i had no idea that it was name of a retrovision person.

    some say it is legit, some say not, i guess we will have to wait to see.
