Aspect ratio problem w/ True Lies

I didn’t know where to put this since doesn’t appear to be directly related to a specific player. In my case it is a Oppo 970 & a Sammy 5088.

The movie ‘True Lies’ has a ‘odd’ aspect ratio where it won’t size up properly using the above equipment. Out of 30 plus DVDs’, this is the first that I couldn’t watch because of a lack of a stretch mode. The height is too narrow to be correct. Swiching between the set and the players aspect ratios choices nothing works except a 16x9 image within a 4x3 innere screen.

I have read other comments regarding issues, but why is this?

BTW, I tried it on another player & TV and I was able to find the right combo.
