HOW THE WEST WAS WON, scanned from 3 individual panels and combined to form a single image.

A frame from the 35mm anamorphic composite, shown to the same scale as the Cinerama image, pretty well tells us why audiences keep flocking to see the film in real Cinerama. And we won't even discuss the poor quality video releases we've had to contend with. Note that the images are not identical frames. You just can't keep those horses still.
