Please fix the TCM Trailer aspect ratio for older films! in General Discussions Posted June 12 Sadly, wrong aspect showings of TCM's library of films is an ongoing issue with many films made available via WatchTCM. I rarely have time to sit down to watch a film as it shows live on TCM such that much of my viewing is via WatchTCM on my computer mirrored to my TV. I can only assume the broadcast versions are also in the wrong aspect ratio, tho other subscribers might know differently. Sadly, many of the 1930s, 40s and 50s B-movies and some A-movies are being streamed in the wrong - albeit only slightly yet still annoyingly noticeable - aspect ratio. As an example, Bad Boy (1949) is a 1.37:1 film aspect, but the WatchTCM version is streaming at roughly 1.33:1. It's a small difference but has an marked impact on the actors features; James Gleason is ridiculously thinned in face and Lloyd Nolan ends up looking baby-faced rather than tough. Perhaps I'm in a minority, but the wrong aspect significantly reduces my enjoyment of a film and can be headache inducing. I've contacted TCM Help Desk via the website to point this out on a number of films the last month. No progress. Perhaps others might do the same to increase the pressure to ensure the films are shown in the correct aspect??
