i agree with mteal. that dolly shadow in shot 3 doesn't really let us in on anything. look at the scene in the linnekar construction site, the men in the car. in the laser disc, after i zoom back to get rid of tv overscan, the scene is framed beautifuly, the framing goes right to the edge using every inch of screen. in the lbx dvd the framing is pretty shabby, and clipped.
also check out the framing in the lbx dvd when quinlan stumbles in the hotel room with grande and stands over the drugged out susan. in the ld you have good framing, in the lbx dvd again, pretty shabby, clipped composition, and most of susan is gone.
there are at least 40 other such moments in the lbx dvd.
but it's just a matter of opinion really. there are people tickled pink with the lbx dvd, and won't have it any other way. i'm into the framing, so for me the lbx dvd was worthless. after i purchased it and saw how awfull it looked, i sold it for $18 at half.com, and kept the laser disc.
the copy of the restored TOUCH OF EVIL i made when it aired on encore, has more image, and better composition that the restored lbx dvd.
regardless of what 'they' intended, it seems welles masked nothing when he framed the film, he framed full screen.
