  • Alfred Hitchcock - The Masterpiece Collection
    Exactly what I wanted. I will buy other collections as well....more info
  • A Must For Any Serious Hitchcock Fan
    If you are a serious Hitchcock fan you owe it to yourself to acquire this collection. Although not an exhaustive collection of his feature films, this beautifully boxed compilation is wonderfully remastered to the best presentation of black and white films I have ever seen. Images are crisp and well defined and the digital sound restoration is superb as well. Watching these DVDs it is hard to believe the age of the masters from which they were derived. What a fine restoration of the works of the master of suspense and, oh yes, absolute master of the unexpected twist at the end of each tale spun. ...more info
  • Masterpiece Collection indeed
    This is great for the movie buff, Hitchcock enthusiast, or for anyone who just enjoys great movies. The packaging is neat with the movies in cases with the original movie posters collaged on each with the appropriate font on each DVD. I love having this displayed on my movie shelf....more info
  • Classy collection of classic Hitchcock
    Of the many Hitchcock collections out there, this one came closest to what I wanted while I was shopping. I was excited about the selections but wasn't sure what to expect in the packaging. In truth I didn't really want to care.

    But when the box showed up I was thrilled to see the attention given to making this a classy, sleek presentation of some of Hitchcock's greatest works. The box itself is of a sturdy build in a gilded, velveteen wrap, and the discs inside come in carefully designed sleeves composed of the posters and advertising materials from the films inside (there are 4 discs per). Menus have entertaining bonus features and the remastered films are gorgeous to look at. I grew up watching nasty, pirated VHS copies of these films. To see them in such pristine condition is like seeing them for the first time.

    I am a graphic designer and something of a cinephile, so I was hesitant to buy some random collection of films that I held in such esteem. I do not regret this purchase. I'd recommend them for the masterpieces within, as well as the beauty of their design without.

    Cons? I wish there were a couple other films included: North by Northwest and Dial M for Murder to name two. But I guess you can't have everything all at once....more info
  • One of the DVD movies doesn't play - error message "Incorrect Disc"
    I bought this excellent collection as a Christmas gift. Very enjoyable - except for "Saboteur" because it won't play, error message "Incorrect Disc." It took us quite a while to get through all the movies - it's now March 5, 07. We wish there were a way to get the Saboteur DVD replaced, but there doesn't seem to be. So be prepared for a possible corrupted disc in the collection.......more info
  • Probably the best overall box set of Hitchcock
    This is truly an amazing collection containing 14 of the Master's films, most of them from his later so-called "Golden Period." Unless you're a Hitchcock completionist, it's likely that you would be more than satisfied with this box set, perhaps supplemented by Strangers on a Train and North by Northwest, which are owned by Warner Bros. and thus not included in this Universal collection.

    While not every film in this set is a "winner," they are all at least worth a look. Not to mention that four of them are absolute masterpieces -- Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, and The Birds -- and that the price of purchasing those four separately is roughly equal to the current price of the entire boxset. Shadow of a Doubt, Rope, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Marnie, and Frenzy are also all worth owning in my view, and it's worth it to purchase the entire set for those nine films alone, and then you get five others as bonus features, not to mention the extra material on all the discs.

    Video quality is great, with all the widescreen films finally made anamorphic. With regards to the The Man Who Knew Too Much, I've never seen the old disc and am unable to compare, but, while it's not as sterling a transfer as Vertigo, it still looks fine on my 32" Samsung LCD.

    You can get marginally better transfers for Vertigo, Psycho, and Rear Window through the recent 2-disc Universal Legacy releases, but the additional extras provided in those sets seem superfluous, with episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and a new featurette or two. What's here is more than adequate and presented quite stylishly within the red velvet case, which is slightly larger than I was led to believe knowing that the discs were housed 4 to a case, but it still fits fine on my shelf. Some care will be required due to the way the discs are situated inside these cases, but they fit snugly when popped into place, and as long as you don't toss them inside like frisbees they should be just fine.

    All-in-all, this is really a superb value....more info
  • Great films from a master director.
    Great films from a master director. The collection is a true sample of Hitchcock's work. Good value for the price....more info
  • great selection
    haven't seen all the movies yet, but if you're a hitchcock fan....what's not to like. most of the classics and a few i never saw or heard of. comes in nice packaging (box). the only thing i'd change is the fact that there's 4 cd's in one cd case, tho with so many movies, the box set would have to be a lot bigger to accomodate individually packaged movies. great deal, especially as the deal of the day!!...more info
  • Great box set of classic Hitchcock...
    I received this set as a Christmas gift and I couldn't be more delighted. Up until this year I had been trying to gather my Hitchcock DVD collection piece by piece- but this set did it for me!

    This set has most of the major films Hitchcock lovers want- like Psycho and The Birds- along with some not as acclaimed but just as entertaining films like Torn Curtain and Rope. The only thing missing is Cary Grant, but there are other collections for those who need North by Northwest or Notorious. I was very impressed to find two of my personal favorites in this collection: Marnie and The Man Who Knew Too Much. Marnie also includes a rather interesting documentary featurette.

    The packaging, as others have said, is not fantastic...but it's adequate and I find the crushed velvet casing quite charming.

    I don't think Hitchcock fans should have any worries about purchasing this collection...14 films for a reasonable price, what more could we ask for?...more info

  • A Great Set to Own...
    This collection comes in a beautiful velvet box with a booklet outlining the 14 films included in the collection. It pains me to give my favorite director's films anything less than 5 stars since some of his greatest creations are in this collection. However, I'm rating the box set and a box set like this should have expanded greatly on what is already available instead of just repackaging previously released DVDs.

    So, what do you get for your $85.00? If you don't own all or most the 14 films included in this collection, you get the films and the extra features in one collection. But, if you already own these Universal DVDs, the answer is "not much."

    I already owned all of these films on Universal DVD so as far as I can surmise after going through my newly purchased box set, my $85 gets me about an hour's worth of additional material. On the bonus disc you get the "AFI Salute to Alfred Hitchcock" (15 minutes long) and "Masters of Cinema," a 30 minute interview with Hitch. On the Vertigo disc you get the alternate foreign ending (about 5 minutes long). The Psycho disc is the only disc where Universal added any new extra features. You get something called the "Psycho Archives," which is basically just a collection of photographs and a few other minor features (more photos and storyboards and some newsreel footage about the release of Psycho) that are not on the original DVD. Strangely, the documentary, "The Making of Psycho," which is on the original Psycho DVD is on the bonus disc as is "All About the Birds," which is on the original The Birds DVD. All of the other 12 discs are practically identical to the previous Universal DVD releases.

    One nuisance with the packaging is that there are multiple discs in each case. There are four cases within the box: the first three cases have four discs each and the fourth has two films plus the bonus disc. This means that the collection is really an "all or nothing" deal. You can't buy it and then resell the films you already have. In my case, the only thing really worth keeping is the bonus disc and maybe a few of the new extras on Psycho.

    So, if you don't have these films-or you only have a few of them-this may be a good way to go about collecting them. If you already have these films, you'll have to decide if $85 is a good price for about an hour's worth of additional material wrapped in a pretty velvet box. ...more info
  • 5 Stars for the movies, 1 Star for the packaging
    I would love to have most of the DVDs in this collection, but I won't get it because of the poorly-designed packaging. I don't want 4 DVDs crammed into one case with the artwork reproduced one-quarter size and overlapping. I want each DVD in its own case with full-sized artwork on the cover. If the idea was to make it more compact, the space saved is insignificant. I think the real reason is corner-cutting to save a few bucks. The other Hitchcock set did it the right way- 1 DVD per case. This is very disappointing. For a lot of us, aesthetics count for a lot. Actually, my ideal preference would be for all box sets to be packaged chronologically, in the order each film was released....more info
  • Hitchcock DVD at the best
    The remastered pictures are the best, the bonus features and the subtittle are good, ehm...worth it!...more info
  • The Box Set Rules
    All of the classics are here(minus Dial M for Murder, North By Northwest, and Strangers on a Train). My only complaint with the box set is how hard it is to insert the disc's. Oh well, now I revie each movie(on a scale of 1-10)

    1. Saboteur
    Date:1942
    Rateing: 6/10
    Opinion: The oldest one of all the movies, and one of the few in black and white, and it has some memorable scenes, most memorably, the Statue of Liberty scene. But, it has its flaws. The plot revolves around a man who is framed for firebombing a World War II airplane factory, by Nazis. Then the flaws kick in,
    a sometimes wooden script, unatractivce female co-stars (the female star looked pretty good), and an offten stupid main charecter, and the traveling sideshow(Why is that there?). Despite its flaws, its still a good movie.

    2. Shadow of a doubt
    Date:1943
    Rateing: 4/10
    Opinion: Alfred Hitchcocks favorite movie, and one of my least favorites. Its plot revolves a young girl (Charlie), who's uncle(also Charlie) may or may not be a serial killer, the marry widow murder. Its not that interesting, the charecters are not that indearing, the story is slow, so slow. But its not without its charms, such as the ending train scene, and Uncle Charlie. Oh well, its in there.

    3. Rope
    Date:1948
    Rateing: 8/10
    Opinion: The first color Hitchcock film, filmed exclusively in one room, in ten, seamless takes. The plot revovles around two men(Brandon and Phillip), who decide they are better then God, and kill one of their ex-collage class mates(David), stuff his body into a trunk, then serve food off his coffin. An ex-proffeser of their's though, knows somethings wrong. The plot is exciting for some one who is anti-nietchze, and read about the Leopold and Loeb case of the 20's. The slow parts happen when ever the two boy's are alone, because they can't bounce off other's personality's. The movie was panned when released, and has only recently been re-discovered as a classic. Oh well, I like it.

    4. Rear Window
    Date:1954
    Rateing: 10/10
    Opinion: Wham, my personal favorite, and Jimmy Stewarts favorite Hitchcock. The plot is about a photographer, (L.B. Jeffery's) who is stuck in a wheel chair, due to breaking his legs, and is confined to a two room apartment, a single window his only escape. While looking out the window, Jeffery's spies across the court yard, a possible murder, and he and his girlfriend (From top to bottom, Lisa Carol Freemont), have to find out what happened. Along with that, their are five sub plots, the married salesman and his invalid wife, the beutifull Miss. Torso who dnaces in her underwear, The newlywead couple who seem perfect for each other, the middle aged couple who's life has the commitment that Jeffery's fears, and the musician who keeps playing the same song over again, and Miss Lonley Hearts who is dying alone, are perfect for each other and don't know it. The plot is exciting, and the scene where we first see Grace Kelly is one of the best in Cinema. Lisssssaaaaa
    p.s. The Song playing in the movie, by the musician, is proof of Lisa and Jeffery's destney. The song is Lisa's Song.

    5. The Trouble with Harry
    Date:1955
    Rateing: 7/10
    Opinion: Slow at first, the movie grows on you. The plot revolves around four people who stumble on a corpse named Harry. Every time they get rid of him, and burry him, something forces them to dig Harry up. This movie is, a comedy, which is something diffrent from Hitchcock, and, the more times you watch it, the better it is. A stupid plot, but great charecters, and the first operience of crazy, but beutiful Shirley Mclane. And, the first music score from the amazing Bernard Herrmann.

    6. The Man Who Knew Too Much
    Date:1956
    Rateing: 9/10
    Opinion: One of the most exciting Hitchcock films produced, a remake of one of his earlier films. The plot of this one involves an American familly vacationing in Turkey. While their, a spy dies, in the husband's arms, and tells the two of them that a European Ambassador will be assinated. Before they can do any thing, their son is kidnapped. The Albert Hall scene is very well filmed, and much better then in the first. The first version of this film is avalible on the internet, and isn't worh a crap. It lacks the music of the second film, (Que Sara, Sara). The music, so great, became another charecter. Thanks Bernard Herrmann.

    7. Vertigo
    Date:1958
    Rateing: 5/10
    Opinion: Conssidered one of Hitchcocks greats, this one never at right with me. The plot involves an ex-cop, who is asked by a friend to trail his wife, who may try to kill herself. The problem is, he has a parilizing fear of hights. The Music isn't as good, and the plot is unbelievable, but the opening credits are worth 5/10. Last Hitchcock with Jimmy Stewart (Rope,The Man Who Knew Too Much, Rear Window). We say, adue!

    8. Psycho
    Date:1960
    Rateing: 10/10
    Opinion: You've been waiting for this, the greatest Hitchcock ever produced, if not, then the most famous. The Plot is divided in two parts. The first part involves Marion Crane, who steals $40,000 to bail her boyfriend out of debt. She ends up at he Bates Motel, with Creepy old Norman Bates, and even crazier Mrs. Norma Bates. Then, the shower. The second part would give away the movie. All I'll say is don't take a shower.

    9. The Birds
    Date:1963
    Rateing: 9/10
    Opinion: This one is also great and timeless, Hitchcocks unusual, unending terror. The story was adapted from a short story by Daphne du Maurier, and the name explains itself. The Birds is the first movie with Tippi Hedren, who was allmost the next Grace Kelly, and who would apear in Marnie. The movie though could have been better with the original ending, which was a shot of the Golden Gate Brige, covered with birds. But, the scene's when the bird's attack, the school scene in perticuler, are very well filmed. Bravo!

    10. Marnie
    Date:1964
    Rateing: 2/10
    Opinion: Oh, how the mighty have fallen. After Hithcock directed three brilliant movies (North by Northwest, Psycho, and The Birds), this stinker came out. Its the story of Marnie, a complusive theif, who tries to steal from her boss (played by Sean Connery[Who isn't American, or good at pertending to be]), who then shows his cronic bad chocies by blackmailing her into marring him. Marine is scared of red, and lightning, making the movie amerture hour(two hours, four muinets) of thearpy.

    11. Torn Curtain
    Date:1966
    Rateing:7/10
    Opinion: The last time Hitchcock and Herrmann worked together, as they had a falling out during the movie. Oh well, its still got a good story. The plot involves a professor and his wife going to East Germany, where the professor attempts to steal Soviet missle formulas. The plot drags for a bit, but its exciting. The escape is very well done, not overly complicated, and at the end, you cheer for the hero's.

    12. Topaz
    Date:1969
    Rateing:0/10
    Opinion: Possibley the worst movie I've ever seen, the plot is non-existent, something about Cuba and missles and the French, and spies named Topaz. The plot has no star, the person who was suposed to star (John Forsythe), was in the movie for tweenty muinets. Then, some dull French Man, who isn't French, sleeps with a Cuban woman, who he's met before, but doesn't know. Then, random people die. And, it goes on for two hours and tweenty muinets (augh)! Don't watch this, if you do, take the following clensing steps.
    1. Kill Self
    2. Repeat

    13. Frenzy
    Date:1972
    Rateing:8/10
    Opinion: The first true serial killer flick, that opened the door for Halloween, and Silence of the Lambs. The plot is about a man who is framed for being a serial killer called the Neck Tie Murderer, and now has to figure out who framed him. Trust me, this is a good movie, and the first film in England, since Stage Fright (1950). Memorable for the qoate of the day, "Mr. Rusk, you're not wearing your tie". A classic, enjoy.

    14. Familly Plot
    Date:1976
    Rateing:9/10
    Opinion: The last Hitchcock film, he had a pacemaker while directing this. The plot revolves a fake psychic, and her boyfrined who figure out that they can make $10,000 by tracking down the nephew of a rich women. The nephew though, has grown up to be a murder and a jewl theif. Barbra Harris is so cute, she makes me drool. The last Hitchcock, the last Hitchcock classic, enjoy.
    p.s., Barbra Harris's wink at the end was improvised, and Hitchcock let her keep it!(wink)

    All and All, a pretty good box set!...more info
  • DVD/Blu-Ray Makers need to learn from this Box Set...
    First of all, I'm not going to review the movies themselves. They are classic's, and flat out worth seeing/owning. This review is about the Box Set itself, the packaging, etc.

    Well, masterful is a good word to describe this "Masterpiece" of a Collection. The makers of this must of had extreme respect for these movies, because this is the coolest DVD Box I've ever seen. Velvet outside, imprinted Alfred Hitchcock silouette as you can see in the picture. And to unveil where the actual dvd cases are, you open the side and slide it back into the box. Stylish and slick! There are about 4 disks to a case, opening up both ways, 2 disks on one side and 2 on the other, half on top of each other. I could see how some might complain about this, but really not a big deal, it's not going to scratch the disks.

    Picture quality is great, menu's slick and easy to navigate. Nice deaf and hard of hearing option too. This probably goes unnoticed by most, by this is nice for those who don't won't to lose how the original portrays the story.

    Basically, unless you already own all the other movies individually (in which case wow!), you need to get this. A must-own for any Alfred Hitchcock fan and DVD collection. I'm just greatly impressed about how nice this box is, other makes really need make dvd box sets nicer for the people who are buying them. Really adds a lot to the value and life of the dvds themselves....more info
  • A GREAT SET FOR THE PRICE! MISSING SOME GREAT FILMS!
    I didn't have any of these films on DVD, so..... When I saw it on sale for around $65.00 I thought it was a great deal for 14 films with some great extra material. I would have liked to see a few different films in this set, but they ended up putting most of those in another DVD set with the exception of "LifeBoat" and "Notorious". I think all "Hitches" missing films should be put into similar sets. This is a nice set, but wait to see it at the right price. These will be dropping way down before you know it. The transfers look crisp and clean with excellent audio!

    I've only watched a handful so far and my ratings will be added as I finish each film.

    1)Psycho 5 stars
    2)The Birds 4 3/4 stars
    3)Marnie 3 3/4 stars
    4)Torn Curtain 3 stars

  • Master of Suspense, Masterpiece Collection
    This collection puts some of the best known Hitchcock films with some less-known films in one wonderful collection. Each disk comes with special features for the film, and there is a bonus disk which I am still watching. It's a great collection, even if I didn't like Marnie or Frenzy. I had never seen The Trouble with Harry, or the new The Man Who Knew Too Much.
    I would say this is a great collection for those who like Hitch, but don't know him well yet....more info
  • Shadow of a Doubt
    Alfred Hitchcock is my all time favorite director, and that is a very clich¨¦ thing to say but it's clich¨¦ for good reason, he simply is the best. Shadow of a Doubt is in my top three favorite films of his. It is nearly perfectly crafted, written, executed and directed. This is truly the closest that a film can get to pure perfection. Every movie fan should see it immediately.

    Every scene is so carefully crafted, every movement, dialogue, lighting choices. Case in point : the dinner scene. The overall tone is very strange, Cotten comes across in the entrance scene as scheming, dark, and brooding with untethered thoughts. Yet with this is the contrast of a small town family reunion. The lauded closeness between the niece and uncle is kind of chilling with its undertone.

    The tension and sharp change in mode in restaurant scene near the end just grabs you by the throat and strangles the air out of it. Only part I didn't like was the melodramatic train ending. Give it maybe another 10 minutes - milk it with more suspense and maybe less dialogue, more glances. But there was not way as Cotton's characters seems to need a reason for remorse but can't find one.

  • Tie up your safety belt and dive
    Fourteen titles. Fourteen films from the American period of Alfred Hitchcock, starting in 1942 and going up to the very last ones, all under the label UNIVERSAL. We will say they are the ripe fruit yielded by a fully mature tree. I will neglect the irritating commitment of Alfred Hitchcock to the political side of self-righteous blindness, the good old western side of the cold war. No distantiation, no relativization. Though a certain use of humor made that lauding song most of the time slightly off tune, but just slightly like the final stanza sung by the mother and the son in the Marrakech hotel in "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1956) that is a midget of half a tone off the tune. It sounds strange and we wonder if the great man really believed what he was depicting in such na?ve terms. That theme is heavily present in this collection of films because after the war Hitchcock spent a lot of his creative time serving that side of the cold war. He could have gone back to England like Charlie Chaplin but he did not because he had no problems with that orientation of his, of Hollywood, of the USA. At times we can wonder if Hitchcock was not a bigot somewhere, someone who remained attached to very traditional values just because they were traditional and who was severely opposed to anything that disrupted these values (like the possible perverted and sublimated into crime homosexual tendency of the two young men in "Rope"). Luckily he did not see the fall of the Berlin wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of the Chinese empire. He could not have survived that kind of trauma. The west becoming second, the USA falling to second, what a nightmare for someone who was defending the idea that the west was number one and in the west the USA was A++. But these films reveal too that Hitchcock was obsessed by climbing up and down, stairs or slopes or whatever, and he explored that side of life systematically in his films, treating that vision as a metaphor of life, insanity, society, whatever. But this obsession that becomes criminal in many films, or synonymous of a crime, a possible crime, a real crime, reveals a fear in Hitchcock and his fear is not so much that of a vertigo but that of something, someone, some authority that is sitting up there in some kind of a throne and casting its lightning ukases and thunder decisions down onto the poor humans under. Don't believe it is God, though Hitchcock's references to God and religion are numerous and very traditional, though at times he may scratch it slightly, but only on the side, like a chapel, not the church mind you, in the 1956 version of his "Man Who Knew Too Much". He lives with the belief that there is some higher level and stratum of power over our heads that menaces us constantly like a Damoclean sword suspended over our heads by a mere single hair. And Hitchcock does not try to reassure you by telling you that hair is a sturdy hair from a mammoth or some other thick-haired animal. He is really afraid of that higher tier. It is often political power and crime, the psyche of people and any kind of spiritual power, when it is not the police. That fear becomes traumatizing in a way when he shifts to the cold war since this time this fear of that menace leads him to stick to another power that is roaming and soaring over our heads too, and this time the political power of the west at all costs. Never did he manage to go over that fear and he never reached some kind of Kubla Khan dome of salvation. Even in "Family Plot" he manages to keep that dependence to that higher level of authority absolutely intact in front of crime. The endings are thus always good, even when they are tragic, like in "Vertigo". The bad one, the accessory to a major crime is frightened by that higher level of moral authority in the shape of a nun that becomes in her vision a glimpse of hell and the devil into jumping and causing her own just death. The art of Hitchcock, and that is what he will survive in our memory for, is the way he creates a situation in two brush strokes and the way he feeds suspense with little spoonfuls of sugar to let our disbelief get to enough suspension so that we can enter this nightmarish though always polished and shiny decadence. And yet that decadence comes to an end and everything comes back into order. He is best when one crime leads to another and then to a third, giving a feeling of total loss in front of that fatality. As soon as you cross a line you cannot come back and you have to go right through to the end that will mean punishment for the culprits and salvation for the innocents. And in that perspective his ability to recreate atmospheres and real situations in all their details is feeding our sense of recognition and our nostalgia when he deals with the past, a past we have known. If you haven't known that past, you can be sure that the slightest detail is right, even the very fruit sold in Covent Garden: they must be from the exact period he is trying to revive.

  • Probably the best overall box set of Hitchcock
    This is truly an amazing collection containing 14 of the Master's films, most of them from his later so-called "Golden Period." Unless you're a Hitchcock completionist, it's likely that you would be more than satisfied with this box set, perhaps supplemented by Strangers on a Train and North by Northwest, which are owned by Warner Bros. and thus not included in this Universal collection.

    While not every film in this set is a "winner," they are all at least worth a look. Not to mention that four of them are absolute masterpieces -- Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, and The Birds -- and that the price of purchasing those four separately is roughly equal to the current price of the entire boxset. Shadow of a Doubt, Rope, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Marnie, and Frenzy are also all worth owning in my view, and it's worth it to purchase the entire set for those nine films alone, and then you get five others as bonus features, not to mention the extra material on all the discs.

    Video quality is great, with all the widescreen films finally made anamorphic. With regards to the The Man Who Knew Too Much, I've never seen the old disc and am unable to compare, but, while it's not as sterling a transfer as Vertigo, it still looks fine on my 32" Samsung LCD.

    You can get marginally better transfers for Vertigo, Psycho, and Rear Window through the recent 2-disc Universal Legacy releases, but the additional extras provided in those sets seem superfluous, with episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and a new featurette or two. What's here is more than adequate and presented quite stylishly within the red velvet case, which is slightly larger than I was led to believe knowing that the discs were housed 4 to a case, but it still fits fine on my shelf. Some care will be required due to the way the discs are situated inside these cases, but they fit snugly when popped into place, and as long as you don't toss them inside like frisbees they should be just fine.

    All-in-all, this is really a superb value....more info
  • Perfect for the price and the non-perfectionist collector!!!!
    I bought this collection for my son of 12 in respecting his being so wonderfully "cool" to like Hitchcock as I scared him thru Birds the year before and he was so excited to get the full collection without having to spend $200 dollars on a more refined one. This may not be the true collection yet it allowed for the full collection of "Twilight Zone" and "Led Zepplin" to be under the tree for him as well so how could any one criticize that!!!! I don't....more info
  • Great releases of Excellent movies... poorly packaged
    The set includes some of Hitchcock's best movies (and some of his worst), in excellent restored formats, with awesome extra features (every film has at least one documentary/featurette). The only drawback is the packaging. The individual cases (4 disks per case) are made out of relatively cheap cardboard, and the plastic disk holders are poorly glued to the cardboard. The "velet" box is really nice, except that it has nothing to keep it closed, so when you pick it up, WATCH OUT!
