MGM settles class action

Apparently, a class action suit has been files against MGM concerning representation of 1.66:1 and 1.85:1 films. The details are clouded in legal-speak, but it boils down to the claim that 1.85 and 1.66 films have the same display ratio. MGM has denied the claim but is agreeing to replace the discs in question with other titles or with $7.11. For more details on the class-action including a list of eligible titles, visit
