Why do you reckon the old one is stretched based on that sign? It could be just as likely that the new one is stretched in the other dimension, no? My suspicion is that the new one might be more correct though. Certain shots on the 2013 version give me vaguely "Why the long face?" vibes if I really stare at them with intent, but I dunno, really.

You think so? I would say that on the contrary, the new one looks a lot more natural, colour-wise. Skin tones are all very "beige", a bit jaundiced, on the 2013 release but they have much healthier looking rosiness to them on the new one: https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?a=1&x=600...0&i=5&go=1. The 2013 one is also very desaturated as you say. That said, I think (other than perhaps the lack of saturation) the colour on the 2013 one might better match my recollection of a 35 mm print I've seen a couple of times, though not very recently. If I ever get a chance to see it again, I can confirm that.

The writing on the Haddonfield sign definitely looks more 'in proportion' in the newer release to me anyway.
