: : G'day everyone.
: : I was just reading back on an old message (actually it was a bunch of follow-ups on Mithrandir's secret) and it appeared to me that for some reason that the Indy trilogy cannot be found in widescreen. I find this unusual as they sell them here at home.
: : How available are the widescreen movies in other parts of the world?
: : Rob (Aust.)

: What's "Aust."? I know it's either Australia or Austria, but either I don't know enough about you or I'm just plain stupid. In any case, as far as Australia is concerned, I read in a previous post that the widescreen Indys in Australia aren't compatible with American VCRs. @$#%^&**^$@@&^&*. How do you like them?
Didn't answer your question, did I? As far as I know, they're only available widescreen in Australia. But, if you go to http://www.widescreencinema.com/letterbox, it shows widescreen shots of Raiders with the caption that it's letterboxed on video. Guess they're talking about Down Under.
