Re: Lost in Space coming to Blu-ray?

I think that the original film images probably did usually have a bit of extra height and width compared to the TV frame. After all, back then, the size and horizontal and vertical positioning of the image had to be adjusted manually with knobs, so it probably helped to have a bit of leeway. In fact, TV screens even had rounded corners back then, so depending on how large you set the picture, bits of it might be cropped anyway. (I think. I remember the edges of the image being a bit inward of the edges of the screen, but I'm not sure if that was the maximum possible image size the TV was capable of. Wow, it's been so long since I had to worry about such things.)
