The film was composed in the 1.37 aspect ratio. During that year widescreen became popular, so Paramount allowed it to be released in 1.66 ratio, Panoramic Screen. Other films were also released in this incorrect ratio that year, according to Bob Furmanek at 3dfilmarchive. Considering the placement of heads in the compositions, the cropping may have been of the top area rather than the middle.
