I've taken the liberty of bumping this list from Disneyfella from page 18, with a few tweaks, and adding the recent info found. When/if Disneyfella updates/bumps this list, I'll reduce this post to these few lines.

FROM RE-RELEASE, WALT DISNEY PRESSBOOKS...



"Bambi" 1957 Re-Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR! PLEASE NOTE!

BEST PROJECTION RESULTS ARE OBTAINED BY USING THE FOLLOWING ASPECT RATIOS IN THE PRESENTATION OF WALT DISNEY'S "BAMBI"

FROM: 1.33 to 1
TO: 1.66 to 1

WARNING! Please do not go beyond 1.66 to 1 aspect ratio or you will lose top and bottom of picture."

(NOTE: The original theatrical framing for "Bambi" when it premiered in 1942 was 1.33:1. Therefore the 1.66:1 matting, in some venues, of this 1957 re-release is another example of the critically frowned upon theatrical re-releases of Disney films in improper aspect ratios.)



"Peter Pan" 1958 Re-Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR PLEASE NOTE

For Best Projection Results In The Presentation of "Peter Pan" Use Aspect Ratio 1:75 to 1"

(NOTE: The premiere of "Peter Pan" was in 1953, just prior to the release of the film "Shane" which introduced the practice of matting films to a widescreen aspect ratio. Therefore it is impossible for the premiere of "Peter Pan" to have been matted. One would include this presentation in the critically frowned upon re-release of Disney animated films with improper framing, however Walt himself was still alive and therefore one has to pause and wonder if he would prefer a widescreen version of the film. Either way, the original theatrical aspect ratio is 1.33:1 and is available on all the DVD releases of this title.)



"Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs" 1958 Re-Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR...PLEASE NOTE

For Best Projection Results In The Presentation Of "Snow White" Use Aspect Ratio 1.75 to 1."

(NOTE: The original theatrical framing for "Snow White" when it premiered in 1937 was 1.33:1. Therefore the 1.75:1 matting of this 1958 re-release is another example of the critically frowned upon theatrical re-releases of Disney films in improper aspect ratios.)



"Swiss Family Robinson" 1968 Re-Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR...PLEASE NOTE!

RUNNING TIME: 2 HOURS AND 8 MINUTES

For top projection results do not exceed ASPECT RATIO 2:35 TO 1"

(NOTE: This matches the original pressbook and presentation of Swiss Family Robinson, though the DVD has a runtime of 126 min, two minutes fewer than what is stated in this re-release pressbook and in the original pressbook.)



"Son Of Flubber" 1970 Re-Release Information:

(NOTE: The live-action featurette "Dad, Can I Borrow the Car? premiered with this re-release.)

"The Aspect Ratio for "Son of Flubber" is 1.75 to 1"

(NOTE: While the theatrical re-release framing is 1.75:1, the DVD release is 1.33:1.)



"Dumbo"/ "The Legend Of Lobo" 1972 Combo Re-Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR PLEASE NOTE!

To achieve maximum theatrical quality, project these films at the aspect ratio indicated below:

"DUMBO" Aspect Ratio 1.75 to 1/ "THE LEGEND OF LOBO" Aspect Ratio 1.75 to 1"

(NOTE: While the theatrical ratio for the re-release of "The Legend Of Lobo" is 1.75:1, the DVD releases are at a 1.33:1 (Open-matte/ Pan & Scan?) ratio.) Also, apparently "Dumbo" was presented in 1972 in an aspect ratio of 1.75:1 which hadn't been invented until almost 15 years after "Dumbo" premiered, and therefore this showing is an example of the critically frowned upon re-release of Disney animated films in improper aspect ratios.)



"Perri" 1972 Re-Release Information:
http://affichesdisney.canalblog.com/arc ... index.html

"ASPECT RATIO 1.75 TO 1"

"The Aspect Ratio for "Song of the South" is 1.75 to 1."

(NOTE: The original theatrical framing for "Song of the South" when it premiered in 1946 was 1.33:1. Therefore the 1.75:1 matting of this 1973 re-release is another example of the critically frowned upon theatrical re-releases of Disney films in improper aspect ratios.)

(NOTE: The original theatrical framing for "Bambi" when it premiered in 1942 was 1.33:1. Therefore the 1.75:1 matting of this 1975 re-release is another example of the critically frowned upon theatrical re-releases of Disney animated films in improper aspect ratios.)



"Blackbeard's Ghost" 1975 Re-Release Information:

"The Aspect Ratio for "Blackbeard's Ghost" to achieve the best screen image is 1:75 to 1"

I've received the following pressbooks...



:clap: "Perri" 1957 Premiere Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR - PLEASE NOTE!

Best Projection Results Are Obtained By Using The Following Aspect Ratios In The Presentation Of Walt Disney's "Perri":

FROM - 1:33 to 1
TO - 1:75 to 1

Please Do Not Go Beyond 1:75 to 1 Aspect Ratio Or You Will Lose Top And Bottom Of Picture."

(NOTE: The DVD release of "Perri" is 1.33:1. As long as this is an open matte transfer on the DVD, it would be consistent with one option of theatrical framing. The other option would include 1.75:1.)



"Now You See Him, Now You Don't" 1972 Premiere Release Information:

"THE ASPECT RATIO FOR BEST VIEWABLE QUALITY IS 1.75 To 1."

(NOTE: While the original theatrical framing for this film was 1.75:1, the DVD release is misframed at 1.85:1.)



I've updated the list above...

I've received the following pressbooks...



"Condorman" 1981 Premiere Release Information:

"THE ASPECT RATIO TO CAPTURE ALL THE SOARING ADVENTURE IS 1.75 to 1."

(NOTE: While the original theatrical framing for this film was 1.75:1, it is misframed on both the Disney and Anchor Bay DVDs at 2.35:1, and the Anchor Bay DVD also has a 1.33:1 Pan & Scan version.)

...the theatre kit states a runtime of 1 hr., 30 min., matching its runtime on DVD...


"Tron" 1982 Premiere Release Information:

"THE ASPECT RATIO FOR AN EXCITING SCREEN IMAGE IS 2:35 TO 1"

(NOTE: The original theatrical framing for this film was the more common 2.35:1 (35mm prints), and also 2.20:1(70mm prints) for some venues. It is presented on DVD at a 2.20:1 ratio.)

*Like Sleeping Beauty and The Black Cauldron, Tron was shown in both 2.35 and 2.20 ratios, the more common/ traditional ratio being 2.35. Somewhat like IMAX showings today, where some films selected to be shown in IMAX theatres concurrently with the traditional theatre showings will be shown at a different ratio to fit the IMAX dimensions, different than what most people will see in a traditional theatre.

...the theatre kit states a runtime of 1 hr. 36 min., matching its runtime on DVD...


I'll update the list shortly...

Agreed. I could understand being off, but in the 1.66:1-1.85:1 range, but to be that far off (twice!) is crazy.

Could someone be informed about this and other ratios?

Well, since there's a "Filmed in Panavision" credit in the opening credits of the movie, and since every widescreen release of the movie has been in 2.35:1, I'm inclined to believe the pressbook is wrong. Now, I haven't seen the movie, just pieces of it on YouTube. If I could see the movie, then I could see in an instant whether it was shot anamorphically or not.

You need to upload the file first to a file-sharing site (like sendspace, megaupload, rapidshare, mediafire, 4shared etc) and then post the link here.

Okay, I uploaded the Condorman page with the aspect ratio image to this site, for those interested. You'll have to wait a few seconds for the regular download tab to appear, then click that...

It's been a little whilte, but I've finally gotten some new pressbooks in to add to the list:

"Lady and the Tramp" 1980 reissue pressbook

"Special Note...The Aspect Ratio is 2.35 to 1"

This re-release presentation was only offered in cinemascope.







"Bambi" 1982 reissue pressbook

"The Aspect Ratio to Achieve the Most Twitterpated Screen Image is 1.75 to 1"

(NOTE: Again, this aspect ratio hadn't been invented until over a decade after the production of Bambi and therefore this is an example of the critically frowned upon reframing of the original theatrical aspect ratio to create a widescreen presentation)











"Cinderella" 1981 reissue pressbook

"The Aspect Ratio to Chieve the Most Cinderific Screen Quality is 1.75 to 1"

NOTE: Again, this aspect ratio hadn't been invented for at least another 5 years and therefore this is an example of the critically frowned upon reframing of the original theatrical aspect ratio to create a widescreen presentation)







"Mary Poppins" 1980 reissue pressbook

No Framing Instructions Found

Wow, didn't realize how long it's been since I've been on here. Anyway, I received the following two pressbooks sometime ago, just now getting around to posting about them on here...


"Big Red" 1962 Premiere Release Information:

"MR. EXHIBITOR - PLEASE NOTE!

Give your patrons the best possible picture on your theatre screen. For top projection results in the presentation of "BIG RED" you must use

ASPECT RATIO 1.75 to 1

WARNING: If projected at a ratio less than 1.75 to 1 there will be a black border at top and/or bottom of screen!"

(NOTE: While the original theatrical framing for this film was 1.75:1, the Anchor Bay DVD release is misframed at 1.85:1, and has a Pan & Scan version, while the Disney DVD release is at a 1.33:1 (Open-matte/ Pan & Scan?) ratio.)


1964's "Emil And The Detectives", no projection instructions given in its pressbook. Also, the live-action short "The Tattooed Police Horse" premiered with this.


I'll update the list at the top of this page shortly...

Was this 1977 film released in 1.75:1 or 1.66:1? I've heard both on numerous websites and i'd love a definitive answer. Maybe someone here is seen one of the kits sent to theaters advising them on how to display it?
