Daniel Morrison pointed me to great, well-written docs on using
mencoder. But as he pointed out,

Oy, is it ever. I can never beat all that up and do experiments before
But wait, Herb Theriault pointed me to:
where the DVD's aspect ratio is reported as 1.85:1. And when I start
mplayer on my ripped file, it reports:
Movie-Aspect is 1.78:1 - prescaling to correct movie aspect.
VO: [xv] 720x480 => 854x480 Planar YV12
both of which aspects are wrong.
Time to cheat. Mplayer has command line switches to re-scale x & y
independently. So playing the ripped file with -x 888 (888/480==1.85)
fixed me right up: subs work and Henry's head is the right shape.
And we enjoyed Henry V very much.
