Repackaged or is it now anamorphic?; box does not say anamorphic? Anyone have it to confirm? Thanks!

The MGM disk published years ago is 16x9.

I've already seen Platoon released in Fox packaging and the disc is the same as the MGM one. I imagine that The Apartment is the same deal.

You may be right, maybe the MGM was anamorphic. The transfer was hideous. I hope Fox did a new transfer.

I re-watched this recently and the PQ was abysmal.

I've been waiting for a remastered disc for years. The original MGM release is easily among the most visually offensive transfers in my collection and I'd be all too thrilled to replace it with a new copy.

I agree. If there is a new DVD and it's any kind of an improvement, I'd love to have it.

I would also really love for Fox to do something with The Graduate. The PQ on the old release isn't THAT bad (although not anamorphic), but I would still like a better edition. These are two of my all-time favorite movies so I'm more of a nitpicker on their releases than I would normally be, but Apartment is a terrible DVD by any standard IMO.

The current release is 1.66:1 widescreen but not 16x9 enhanced.

I don't know where you got your DVD, but mine is most certainly not 1.66:1 and it is also 16x9 enhanced.

My apologies. I watched this movie as well as 12 Angry Men the other day, both MGM movies, and got the specs switched. I should have double-checked.
