Columbo - 1991-1993 Collection to be Widescreen


New transfers, new video format

When we first posted about Columbo: The Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1993 we reported that it'd be Full Frame (1.33:1). Universal recently updated their specs, listing the video as Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1), so we contacted them to get the story on the spec change.

Universal is using a new Anamorphic Widescreen transfer for the set, opening up the sides of the picture, much like Warner Bros did with the early seasons of ER (and not what happened to the first season of Kung Fu, which had the tops and bottoms cropped). Obviously these didn't air in widescreen initially, but we're hoping the new transfers look great.

The 3-disc set will be released on February 8, and can be purchased from Amazon.com for $20.99:
