    Fox and the Hound DVD: full screen only?

    I was thinking about adding The Fox and the Hound to my Disney DVD collection but noticed that the version that is currently out is in full screen.
    Is the Fox and the Hound only in full screen?

    I read that Fox and the Hound was only released in full frame, even in theaters. Is this true?

    Re: Fox and the Hound DVD: full screen only?

    I remember seeing it in the theater and I think it was full frame old time type movie. I really only liked the first part of the movie when they are kids. After they grew up it got kind of maudlin for me and too predictable. Sort of like Bambi. I love them as little critters, but as grown ups they are not as enchanting. Bambi did the grown up thing better anyway.

    It may be only full-screen at the Disney Store. They pulled that crap with Narnia too. You had to get the wide-screen somewhere besides there.

    Haven't heard anyting about F&TH.

    I don't know where my F&TH came from but it wasn't TDS - and it's widescreen, I just checked. Man, that's a bummer!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Fox and the Hound DVD: full screen only?

    I checked the back of every 25th anniversary F&TH package in local stores and so far all I've seen was full screen. There is one comment on Amazon that someone posted saying the movie was theatrically released only in full screen.

    I remember seeing it in the theater when it came out but I can't remember if it was full screen or widescreen.

    The correct aspect ratio of Fox and the Houd is 1.66 : 1. I don't own the DVD so I can't say if it's out LBX or not. I'll check our local retailers to see if it's available.

    1.66:1 is definitely not "fullscreen" so yah... you'll be losing some edges if you get that copy.

    Re: Fox and the Hound DVD: full screen only?

    I took a look at: http://www.ultimatedisney.com/oar.htm
    where is talking about the arious screen formats, and it seems that fullscreen was the original Theatrical release for Fox and the Hound. If it seemed like widescreen in theaters, it says that it was matted.
