5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed!
This is just a lovely box set! I had seen the previous edition of this set which contained the same movies but in full size dvd cases so the box set was on the large size and would have taken up a lot of space on the shelf, however this new issue which came out September 2014 is amazing, all 19 films are housed in one large case on individual flaps in book style, the...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality sound, fuzzy picture DVD's
This film set should not be sold by a reputable seller in its present form.
The films, in my opinion, are unwatchable as the images are fuzzy and the sound quality is very poor - in fact they look worse than low quality rip-offs from pirated works!
Shame on Amazon for selling something of this quality - a total waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Package,
This is a beautifully packaged product featuring many of Cary Grant's greatest films and much of his early work. Presentation is superb making this truly a collector's item. The films themselves are of good quality though extras would have been nice. Recommended and at the price I paid at the time - good value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap is the word,
A lot of movies for the money,but sadly the usual Universal no expense incurred presentation. No digital restoration here and the two 'Scope movies are a disgrace. "The Grass is Greener" looks like it was mastered from VHS in non anamorphic letterbox, while "That Touch of Mink" is a ghastly pan and scan job in spite of the sleeve claiming it's 2.35:1.

I thought this was good value, as it contained some of my favourite Cary Grant films (as well as others I'm not so fond of). However, I was disappointed - and annoyed - to find that four of the films don't have subtitles, even though the description on Amazon suggests they all do. The four films without subtitles are: Bringing Up Baby, Indiscreet, Suspicion and My Favorite Wife. My husband cannot watch films unless they have subtitles so it's very important to us that Amazon provides accurate information in this respect. I would have returned the item if I hadn't decided to pass it on to someone as a present.

4.0 out of 5 stars There's a few missing...,
I know it would be impossible to include all of his films but it seems to me that there are a few missing that you'd expect to be here. Three of my favourite Cary Grant films are missing; His Girl Friday, The Awful Truth and I was a Male War Bride. It's a shame (and why I can't give this lovely box set five stars) and surprising. Other than that, this is a well put together set and is a perfect present for not just Cary Grant fans, but fans of 1930s/40s cinema and Classic Hollywood Cinema.
5.0 out of 5 stars Cary Grant fans should be thrilled,
This is a huge compilation of movies all in one place and at a reasonable price. If you are a Cary Grant fan you will be very happy. All the films I have viewed so far have been in good shape even if they have not been digitally remastered. I am pleased with this purchase and recommend it to anyone who likes the oldies.
