ASPECT RATIOS for these films,
This review is from: Billy Wilder Collection: Volume 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I have the set and here are the aspect ratios according to the boxes and from my viewing
- THE APARTMENT ... widescreen version 16:9 .. presented in 2.35:1
- SEVEN YEAR ITCH . widescreen version 16:9 .. presented in 2.55:1
- WITNESS FOR PR... fullframe version 4:3 .. presented in 1.66:1
- FORTUNE COOKIE .. widescreen version 16:9 .. presented in 2.35:1
- SHERLOCK HOLMES . widescreen version 16:9 .. presented in 2.35:1
Having checked all the aspect ratios with the info on the IMDB site I can confirm they are in the exact same ratio as originally released to the cinema. So havent a clue where the other reviewer gets the idea from they are PAN AND SCANNED.

From watching all the discs in the set myself I would agree; they all seem to be in their natural aspects with the exception of THE FORTUNE COOKIE, which seems to be cropped ever so slightly on top and bottom to make it wider. I noticed while watching the film that all the compositions seemed a little cramped, then checked the trailer included on the disc, which does indeed show greater room at top and bottom of the frame and looks far better (composition-wise), suggesting the transfer to DVD in this one case is a little less diligent than the rest. It is worth stating that by and large the transfers are very good.

Can you tell me if the films got any subtitles?
