4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to the Master of Suspense
Alfred Hitchock - Essential Collection contains Psycho, Rear Window, Vertigo and The Birds. It's just 4 previous older DVD versions put together. I didn't mind the fact because I didn't own these films previously. All 4 films are in their own separate cases and comes with some extras.

Rear Window comes with 2 featurettes and some trailers, art gallery...

This review is from: Alfred Hitchock: The Essential Collection (Rear Window / The Birds / Vertigo / Psycho) [DVD] (DVD)
Alfred Hitchock - Essential Collection contains Psycho, Rear Window, Vertigo and The Birds. It's just 4 previous older DVD versions put together. I didn't mind the fact because I didn't own these films previously. All 4 films are in their own separate cases and comes with some extras.

Rear Window comes with 2 featurettes and some trailers, art gallery.

Vertigo comes with commentary track involving people who worked on the film, 30 min featurette on restoration and production of the film, and trailer.

Psycho has only a trailer and no other extras.

The Birds has 1 hour 20 min long documentary, Tippi Hedren's screen test, Deleted scene + alternate ending( via storyboards and script pages), Universal News reel and a trailer. Picture is 4:3 aspect ratio.

Overall not bad collection for those who want to experience Hitchcock for the first time. But could have used better versions.

You cant go wrong with master storyteller Alfred Hitchcock. He knows how to set a scene,leave you guessing,and visually stimulate you to pull you into the story.What more can you ask for?

Five out of five is the correct rating for these D V D's.

The picture quality is crystal clear; and the sound quality also.

I chose these title's, as I thought they were a good mixture for viewing for myself or friends.

I would recommend these D V D's to my family and friends.

There is nothing to say about the box. I love to watch movies with my girlfriend and friends and i confess that only some time ago that i started to watch the old classics...what i have been missing....

Great value for the money with a bunch of must have movies.

Having never seen "rear window" all the way through decided to buy this set and must say have not been dissapointed. having seen the Birds and psycho before they still freak me out a bit and as for Rear Windo, excellent and vertigo is a very clver film.
