As has been pointed out by other reviewers, this box has its problems. Chief among these is that not all the films are in their original aspect ratios (even worse is that the information on the box itself is misleading, mixing the numbers and the labels on aspect ratios repeatedly).
However, for the price you're not likely to get as great a pile of films as these. There's scarcely a dud in here (Topaz and Family Plot are not so great, but bad Hitchcock is still better than a lot of directors' 'great'), and many of Hitchcock's best films are here (only The Birds out of the 'classics' isn't in the correct ratio). Prints are all the best available, and every film comes with a featurette (all, I think, at least half an hour in length) that covers the basics on its film as well as including interviews with surviving 'players.'
The only real surprise in here was a bonus disc with Psycho, which includes an interview with Hitchcock and the AFI tribute dinner to him. Neither of these are necessary, but nice little extras anyway.
What it comes down to is that this is a fantastic bundle of fine cinema for very little cash. Any issues with the content are really just quibbling. If you have those kind of problems, you should have no trouble shelling out proper money for correct copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Hitch-Box 5 Jun 2010
Simply A MUST HAVE...14 Hitchcock movies which should please fans and passing viewers alike.It's impossible to review a set of
this size fairly suffice to say some movies you'll like more than others naturally enough.The selection here is wide and varied from ROPE to FRENZY THE BIRDS to TROUBLE WITH HARRY you get the gist something for everyone.Theres an excellent selection of extras on offer on every disc also.I bought this set at the local Zaavi closing down sale for 30 euro last year
I thought it a bargain then but look at the amazon price now even lower. If you buy this set you'll not regret your investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Boxed Set 20 Aug 2007
By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER
I have just purchased this set of Hitchcock films and aside from the missing 'North by Northwest' and 'Strangers on a Train' (both of which I already own anyway) and a few of the early British classics this is very nearly definitive.

Of the 14 films in this set five are ranked in the top 250 films of all time on the internet movie database ([...]
Rope = 237
Shadow of Doubt = 155
Vertigo = 35
Psycho = 22
Rear Window = 13

Of the remaining nine films several are wonderful films in their own right and because Hitchcock was the director none of them are turkeys.
The films are packaged in the thin DVD cases and the box itself is well made and will look good on your shelf.

Having picked the set up quite cheap I assumed that there would be no extras on the discs, but in fact 'Psycho' is 2 DVD set, so you actually get 15 DVD's in the boxed set, and all the films contain extras.
For example on 'Rear Window' you get:

Rear Window Ethics: Remembering
& Restoring a Hitchcock Classic - Making Of
Featurette
Art Gallery
Trailer Compilation
Theatrical Trailor

So overall this is a simply a marvellous set of films, by one of the greatest ever filmmakers. You could watch one a night for two weeks and then start again. Now which one shall I watch first?

2.0 out of 5 stars Panned, scanned and damned 29 Aug 2008
By Scottie
A potentially fabulous box set is scuppered by the fact (as pointed out by other reviewers) that four of the films - The Birds, Marnie, Torn Curtain and Topaz - are presented in completely the wrong aspect ratio, despite information to the contrary on the boxes themselves. The upshot is that anyone who buys this set, tempted by the admittedly wonderful extra features, will still have to buy widescreen (Region 1) versions of these films if they want to see them in a form even approximating to what Hitchcock intended. How ridiculous. They might just as well have colorised Psycho while they were at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely restored films!! 6 Feb 2008
Better quality than the originals.Bonus features show how the complete restoration from film was achieved to produce much sharper images and colours than the cinema showings.With a couple of notable omissions from the line up this is the best box set of Hitchcock I have seen. Well worth purchasing .

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Value for Money 29 July 2011
I know some other reviews have expressed annoyance/disappointment with some of the aspect ratios of certain films in this collection, but personally speaking, I didn't notice any issues and it certainly didn't hinder my enjoyment of any of the films.

The collection itself is obviously not a complete collection of Hitchcock's entire body of work, but it's a very significant chunk, comprising many of his most famous films and thus represents many hours of top quality entertainment that definitely offers enjoyment over multiple viewings.

Everyone will have their favourite films in this set, there is something for everyone, from light-comedy (Trouble with Harry), adventure (Saboteur) to much darker and more menacing work (Psycho, Shadow of a Doubt).

I recommend buying this set for all the reasons above, it's a great investment. It's also worth mentioning that most, if not all, of these films have solid and informative special features.
