The Man Who Knew Too Much
And perhaps some of the lesser familiar movies like:
Shadow Of A Doubt
The Trouble With Harry
Topaz I had never seen before and it was a really enjoyable movie. This is a great collection overall, not a bad movie in the set.
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.
This set boasts very good-to-gorgeous transfers. Formats are overall close enough, with several glaring exceptions underway in these reviews.
THE BIRDS, TORN CURTAIN, MARNIE, and TOPAZ are full screened, as they were presented in their VHS and Laserdisc versions. Now boasting altogther better-to-excellent images, one still misses those precious sides.
And what about PSYCHO? Theatrically, full screened. By last re-issue and herein, 1.85:1. Don't hear any complaining about that!
Still we must hold our thumbs up to Universal Europe for this excellent Hitchcock collection. The set is well worth your time and money.
