HOW IT WILL LOOK ON YOUR TV:
Original aspect ratios are an important part of enjoying movies on television. TCM takes great care to present movies in their original format and letterboxed whenever possible. Some networks choose not to letterbox, a decision often related to cost, availabity of original print elements, or the misconception that a majority of audiences don’t care for letterboxing. The guide below is intended to help understand how films are formatted for your TV (depending upon your TV type), and in some cases, how much of a movie you are missing without letterboxing.
