Here are the rest of the images from Philo's comparison ... again, in each case, the top image is from his transmission version, the bottom one from the DVD.

Philo asked me to post some captures he did from the transmission version of Play Misty for Me that he worked on, along with some comparison frames (which I captured) from the Universal Region 1 DVD. I'm going to post the images in two messages, because otherwise I would exceed the allowable number of images per message.

Here's Philo's introduction to the images:
The following images at the top of each example are from a transmission version of Play Misty for Me mastered in 16:9 widescreen approx 1 year before the Universal DVD. The bottom examples are the same frames from the region 1 DVD release.

As with Warner's Dirty Harry the sides are cropped. (And this is not a 2.35:1 film.)

This thread was originally on the old board but it had so much good information, it warranted being brought over here.

I hope everyone here will enjoy these pictures and the discussion.

Q: Did you write a song about costarring with him in Blood Work?

DANIELS: It's called "The Dirty Harry Blues", which is about what it's like getting shot by Clint Eastwood.

Q: What is it like being shot by Clint Eastwood?

DANIELS: It's an out-of-body experience because you can't get past that the 9mm handgun that is three feet away from your chest is being held by Dirty Harry.

Thanks for posting that, Holden.

I wonder how the lyrics to "The Dirty Harry Blues" go? ;)... do you guys think the chorus is "make my day"?  ???  ;D

he still doesn't have a star. Kind of odd, since (it mentions) Big Bird and Pee Wee Herman have stars!

 >:( Noooooooo way! ::)

I'm still at work so I took a quick glance at the site that Agent provided and found this:

Criteria For Star on the Walk of Fame

1) Professional Achievement in the Field of Entertainment

2) Longevity of Five Years or More

3) Contribution to the Community

It's just me or Clint Eastwood fits the profile extremely well?

Maybe it's an european thing... I'm with Philo and Stranger cause I also didn't enjoy Unforgiven that much.

Why? Because for me to enjoy a movie, i need to like the story and in this case, I didn't  care much for the characters or  the story, the only character I really cared about was Delilah Fitzgerald cut and I think she should have a more relevant part.

I do admit that Unforgiven is the work of a movie scholar, it was filmed in a excellent way (the first scene is memorable), well acted... but  :-\ the story just didn't work for me. I don't think it was a innovative story, and most part of it was predictable (at least from my point of view).

Josey Wales is a different movie, I enjoyed the story from the beginning and I don't mind watch it over and over again.

Maybe it's really "an european thing".  :P ;D
