Bought the Giant from the iTunes store & very much disappointed with the HD quality of this movie. The graininess of the pic is terrible the long shots look blurry, Texas looks too small the landscape looks tiny. I am pissed.

There are similar PQ complaints about the Blu-Ray transfer. I suspect the iTunes version probably comes from the same source.

IMDB says this was shot in 35mm Spherical and original AR was 1.66 -- so this was never intended as a wide-screen extravaganza. But it does not appear that anybody has found a quality source.

In other words, it's probably not iTunes' fault, but in general charging extra for HD versions of crappy transfers is bad policy . . .
