I wanted to wait until I had viewed all of the DVDs before I wrote this review. I'm not going into any deep detail about the plots or anything like that as many other reviewers do. I don't see the need for this since these films are already so well known.

First of all, I believe that most knowledgeable film lovers will agree that 'Psycho', 'Rear Window' and 'Vertigo' are true masterpieces. Many people would add 'The Birds' to this list, although I thought that one falls a little short. Don't get me wrong, I liked 'The Birds' a lot and it is excellent, but I don't think it is in quite the same catagory as the other three.

One of my favorites was 'Shadow of a Doubt'. Hitchcock named this as his personal favorite, and it is excellent. Joseph Cotton is very convincing as the serial killer known as the merry widow murderer. This film was made in the early 1940s and many people haven't seen it because they have some aversion to films that are made in black and white. These people need to get past this silly issue because they are missing some of the best films ever made. If you haven't seen 'Shadow of a Doubt' you really need to.

Altogether, this makes five films in the collection that, in my opinion, are truly excellent or better. There are several other films that I also liked a lot including 'Frenzy' (another serial killer), 'Rope', (very under rated) 'The Trouble with Harry', 'Saboteur' and 'Family Plot'. 'Family Plot' was Hitchcock's last film and although it certainly will never be considered among his best works, Bruce Dern and Barbara Harris are great, and the ending really made me smile.

There are a couple of films in this collection that I think are just so-so. I know many will disagree, but 'The Man who knew too much', and 'Marnie' just didn't do much for me.

Lastly, this set contains what I feel are two real clunkers. I thought 'Topaz' was a total bore, and 'Torn Curtain' wasn't much better. Both are cold war/spy films that just don't make the grade. Hitch would have been better off letting 'North by Northwest' (NOT INCLUDED in this set) serve as his lone cold war representative. ('North by Northwest' is my personal Hitchcock favorite. Too bad it isn't included.) Don't let my opinion stop you from watching 'Topaz' and 'Torn Curtain' at least once. Both do have some interesting scenes and many folks like them much better than I did. In 'Torn Curtain', I thought Paul Newman did a great job of looking terrified throughout the entire film, and there is one scene that is absolutely riviting. This one scene alone makes the film worth viewing at least once.

The bonus DVD contains very interesting and informative features on the making of 'Psycho' and 'The Birds'. The other DVDs also contain interesting bonus material.

As for the quality of the DVDs; I thought overall the quality was pretty good. I did notice a couple of minor glitches and just a little fading in color and contrast from time to time. These are hardly worth mentioning and it only happened a few times, but I thought I'd better mention it anyway. I have a very cheap and simple DVD player and I really didn't have any problems. Many people complain about widescreen clipping off a lot of the picture, but this can be adjusted on all DVD players with the zoom function. You clip a little of what would normally be seen off of the sides, but people who want to fill the screen can do so. Most of these films are formatted to clip a little off the top and bottom of the screen and that's how I viewed them. I don't know if this counts as widescreen, but the picture size can be adjusted on all DVD players.

I was not overly pleased with the packaging. The DVDs do not have individual sleeves, rather, they come in little booklets, with four DVDs each. I knew this when I bought the set, and this alone should not stop anyone from buying the set. I would have perfered individual sleeves, but at least this packaging makes the set very compact.

THE BOTTOM LINE: I'm giving this set 4-stars because of the packaging and the marginal and clunker films that it contains. I would never pay the list price for this set, and I would not even pay the normal Amazon price of $98.99. This set goes on sale from time to time, and I bought mine from Amazon in late July for $63. At this price it's a great buy, so be patient... it will go on sale again. If you are interested in this set, wait until it goes on sale again, buy it and enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Poor Box Design-- here's how to fix it! 4 novembre 2010
Par R. Smith - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
BOX DESIGN: a thin slipover cardboard outer part fits tightly over the main felt heavy cardboard disk case housing. The slipover contains interesting information on the disks and should be saved. However, it is troublesome to slip it off each time to remove a disk set from the main housing. The main housing is opened by a nylon pullstrap that opens the housing side. Four disk cases containing 3-4 DVDs are held TOO FIRMLY by internal plastic slides that are glued to the inner top and inner bottom of the housing. A book is literally crammed between the spaces and for my case, some pages were folded even as a new item! The housing is TOO BULKY and I was tempted to throw it away..... it's tough to remove and put back the DVD cases .... it's impossible to remove and put back the book without damaging it... Did anyone try the design before manufacturing 1000's of these???

MODIFIED BOX DESIGN: to make the housing box usable, do the following: (1) remove the inside top and bottom plastic slides by folding one of the holders over a little bit and pulling it-- the glue is not so strong and it will peel off-- this will allow the FULL internal contents of the box to be used. NOW, the housing can hold the 4 DVD disk set cases PLUS the book comfortably AND 2 more DVD cases -- I chose a couple of previously owned Hitchcock movies-- North by Northwest, etc. ALSO, cut the thin slipover cardboard (back part only) and make it about the size of the book-- it can be put in the housing also. With this modification, the housing (very attractive) can hold the full 15 DVD set + book + 2 of your favorite Hitchcock movies in DVD cases and the back cover information. Try it, you'll like it!

PRICE: This set is well worth the $51 (USD) or 58 % off price that it sold for as a one-day sale item.

DVD cases and DVDs: these are the overlapping disk type made of hard polystyrene with the push-center to release type. Not my favorite, but these seem to work. Users generally prefer polypropylene slim-line cases as these are soft and allow the disks to be easily removed. DVDs are labeled and SINGLE-SIDED the way that they should be.

BOOK: some good information/trivia but it could be so much better. The printing is cheap and the pictures do not match where the book folds. An introduction to such a fine set of movies deserves better
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Waiting for Blu-Ray? Nah... 14 novembre 2009
Par B. Rodgers - Publié sur

I'm a big hi-def fan. I love my Blu-Rays and don't buy too many DVDs anymore. But I bought this. The simple fact is that it's a great value, and we don't know how long it will be until each and every one of these 14 movies is on Blu-Ray. Or if they all will be. So far we've only now just gotten North by Northwest on Blu, and that's from a different studio and thus isn't included in this box set anyway.

HDNet did a marathon of many of these same Hitchcock movies, and I still had them on my Tivo to compare. I think they do look a little better than the DVDs do upconverted on my Panasonic BD-60 player. But I don't think that these are new HD masters from source, with the kind of cleanup we'd expect on a top-notch Blu-Ray transfer. I think they probably just upconverted them from the same DVD source using better equipment than I have. I could be wrong, but I suspect this also in part for simple economics -- if they'd spent the money to remaster them for HDNet, I'd expect they'd be pushing them out on BD pretty fast to cash in on it. And as far as I know, HDNet is not re-running these often.

So if you want BDs, you're probably waiting for Universal to decide it makes sense to spend the money on commissioning 14 different expensive remasters and releases. And even if they do that, it'll be awhile before you see them anywhere close to this price. And if on top of that you want a nice box set to have them all packaged up, it'll be even longer. And if you want that box set at a good price, it'll be even longer still.

Therefore, even if you are lamenting the lack of Hitchcock on Blu-Ray and feeling like you should wait for it to happen, I'd still buy this if you're a fan. Especially if you see a great deal like the Gold Box deal from early November 2009. If/when some of your favorites start coming out in BD, you can upgrade if you see fit. In the meantime, this is the best way to be able to enjoy 14 of Hitchcock's masterpieces whenever you want, and at a great price.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must own set for any film enthusiast. 30 juillet 2009
Par M. Neumann - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
This is by far five stars worth of film. However, to rate the entire product, I was somewhat disappointed. When my boxset arrived I inspected each disc. Out of the 15 discs, 4 were in questionable condition. They had not been loose in the packaging which leads me to believe that they were placed in the box after being damaged. The scratches on each disc had nothing to do with shipping. It had everything to do with the butthead that packaged it. I only wanted to write a review to warn people that the films are fantastic, but your main concern when purchasing this item is who is assembling it for you. I would send it back and request new discs, but I fear that the same thing might happen again. Torn Curtain was in the worst condition, and it seems to have played just fine. I only scrolled through the film so hopefully when I get the time to watch the whole thing, I will not be disappointed. Although it does not include North by NorthWest, this boxset is filled with classics that any movie fanatic can enjoy. There is not a poor choice in the bunch.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 DVD/Blu-Ray Makers need to learn from this Box Set... 15 octobre 2008

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.
