the movie is framed 1.66:1. This is narrower than our 1.78:1 HDTVs so there are black bars on the sides of 1:1 displays (overscan hides it on TVs that have it). kind of funny that you've never come across a 1.66:1 movie as there are a number of them. As for Bond, From Russia With Love (and the eventual Goldfinger) are all 1.66:1. Bond didn't go CinemaScope until Thunderball.

1.66 is way more common for European films, which is why this might be the first time you're seeing it.

These blu-rays are nothing short of miraculous. Bond has never looked this good!

I watched Dr. No last night and was blown away. I wish that the Lowry doc was in HD though.
