Promises in the Dark, Heart Beat, Dusty Sweets and McGee are all in anamporhic widescreen.
During the credit sequence of Heart Beat thin black bars appear at the top and bottom of the screen. When the first scene starts they disappear indicating cropping at the sides.
Promises in the Dark whilst taking up the whole screen is cropped, by how much I don't know, on the sides. When the title appears the K is missing from dark. However it is not uncommon for films to be slightly cropped on the sides.
