Movie Poster Mondays

French poster of QUEEN OF BABYLON

The poster says 'écran panoramique' (panoramic screen) and yet the film was shot in standard 4:3 aspect ratio. Hmm...interesting.

I tried to do a Fan Dub of this but the English version, and its audio track, is totally different than the versions from Germany or Italy.  I had to abandon the project. I like this movie but the English copy that I have now is extremely poor. Oh well...

I haven't seen this film, so I can't say for certain this is the case, but there were a good number of films during this time frame that were shot spherical 4:3 and soft-matted during projection to "widescreen" proportions-- 1:66, 1:85, etc.

I guess examining the composition of the 4:3 image would be telling.
