Scorsese Talks About “One-Eyed Jacks”

Martin Scorsese gives a tutorial about Marlon Brando‘s “One-Eyed Jacks” (1961). Scorsese, who oversaw the “One-Eyed Jacks” restoration with Steven Spielberg, defends the “painstaking” decision to go with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio (the film could have easily and harmlessly been cropped at 1.75:1 or, better yet, 1.66:1) because that’s how it was projected at Leows’ Capitol in 1961.
