  I don't know if anyone else is confused by this information. Maybe this
is a personal, not a subscriber-type question:
> an interesting effect can be seen in NORTH BY NORTHWEST.  If you show

> 16 mm. print, you can see the tops of the cutaway taxi cabs....
  I want to do this, but I don't know how.
  Normally, I rent the 16 mm. print and project it. I don't have a scope
lens. What does it mean to adjust the framing? What exactly do I do? Does
this require a kind of projector I don't have?  If so, please give me
details on the specs of such a projector.
  Also, I project video and laser through a beam. The image can get
larger or smaller, but the aspect ratio doesn't change.
  In ignorance,
  Susan Denker
