[Tig] Regular 8mm Film That No Longer Measures 8mm Wide

Okay, forget about the actual width of 8mm film.

What is the aspect ratio supposed to be when measuring from the right 
edge of sprocket holes to the right edge of the image in a frame?

I did a flatbed scan of 8mm film, and the aspect ratio measures about 
1.417, not 1.333.

So I am wondering whether, though a projected image possibly ends up 
cropped to 1.333, perhaps the image on the film it is wider?
