What is the correct aspect ratio?


I have this movie on VHS and have been searching for it on DVD. However, I have a question about the DVD. What aspect ratio is it in? The IMDB states the movie as being shot in 2:35 widescreen. However, on amazon.com, it lists the movies widescreen aspect ratio as 1:85. Can anyone who owns the DVD tell me what format it is in? If you are unsure of aspect ratios, here is an easy way to tell. On a widescreen TV, a 1:85 aspect ratio will produce minimal to no black bars on the top or botton of the screen. A 2:35 ratio will have noticeable black bars on the top and bottom. Even if the DVD is in 1:85, does anyone know if that was the actual ratio the movie itself was shot in. Thanks.

The DVD is 2.35

The DVD for some reason has been cropped to 2.00:1. I don't know why. Because of this there are many shots in the movie that are too tight at the sides.

The version I have is 2:35 WS.
