25th Anniversary Re-release
16mm blowup to 35mm

1.85 (?) **
Format 05*
6 Reels
Reels 3 and 5 are short

Final image: NC-17 Rating

*Leaders for Reels 1-3 state "Dolby A" in the soundtrack area
*Leaders for Reels 4-6 state "Dolby SR" in the soundtrack area

**Beware: The negative was spliced out of frame throughout -- it would require constant re-framing throughout if projected at 1.33 (from 16mm original).

Based on the AR of the corresponding video release, it's likley that this version was created for 1.85 projection, but the cans (from WB archive) are labeled as "1.33" and there is no indication on the print itself that this version is to be projected at a different ratio than the original.

However, it seems that the intent is to keep the important action contained within a cropped frame.

Reel-6 is mostly a collection of outtakes (and the original trailer) hosted by John Waters.
