Based on your review, it appears this Blu-ray is derived from an old scan that was used for that DVD TCM Vault Collection that was released a decade ago.

The liner notes say it's a new 2K scan, but if it is, they didn't do much else to it after the scan because it's quite artifact-ridden.

A new scan doesn't mean the necessary clean-up work was done to make the presentation more pristine looking.
