Good introduction to the Master of Suspense
on 21 February 2012
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.
