    This publicity photo of John Howard Davies was taken by Ian Jeayes at Goodwood racecourse on Friday, June 24th, 1949,
    during a break in filming The Rocking Horse Winner there.

    Unfortunately, the DVD version wasn't of great quality and was shown in the wrong format. But it was still good to see.

    Ah, I thought that would happen, Nick. It sounds like the digital projector they used stretched the 4 x 3 image out to 6 x 3, as happened at the Regal, Tenbury Wells. This is most likely because the only DVD of the film available is a domestic 4 x 3 release and no transfer of the film has yet been made onto a special DVD designed for showing on a digital projector, a transfer that has the 4 x 3 image inside the 6 x 3 shaped screen so that there is no image distortion.
