Most of the numero uno candidates have been listed, so I'll try and list some gems that either have an all-out shit transfer or are simply lacking anamorphic encoding.
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers - Both the legendary original and the hugely underappreciated 1978 version by Phil Kaufman, which has a decent transfer, but is not anamorphic.
Chushingura - Brilliant samurai film from 1966. Dodgy non-anamorphic transfer with subtitles on the lower letterboxing bar, so that when you zoom in on a 16x9 TV, the subtitles get chopped off. Gah!
High Noon - An over-processed 'restoration' that is THX-certified, whatever that means these days.
The Seven Percent Solution is indeed a great little film, Dennis, and Universal should revisit it.
