Factory worker Barry Kane (Robert Cummings) finds himself branded an industrial saboteur after a fire breaks out in the workplace. The extinguisher he handed to his colleague and best friend itself burst into flame, and Kane is now on the run, determined to find the real culprit and so prove his innocence. The only person who believes his story is Patricia Martin (Priscilla Lane), who aids him in his flight from the authorities. Alfred Hitchcock's suspenseful chase film, a contribution to America's wartime propaganda, can be seen as a precursor to his later success 'North by Northwest'.
This seven-disc box set includes the following titles:
The Trouble with Harry: the 1955 black comedy concerning a pesky corpse that becomes a problem for a quiet, Vermont neighbourhood.
The Man Who Knew Too Much: the 1956 remake of Hitchcock's own 1934 spy thriller. James Stewart and Doris Day play American tourists who discover more than they wanted to know about an assassination plot.
Rear Window: the 1954 film in which the story and visual perspective are dictated by its protagonist's (Jimmy Stewart) imprisonment in his apartment. Stewart's convalescence in a wheelchair provides the revolutionary perspective from which both he and the audience observe the lives of his neighbours.
Rope: the 1948 experimental film masquerading as a Hollywood thriller, the plot is simple and based on a successful stage play: two young men commit murder as an intellectual exercise.
Shadow of a Doubt: the 1943 thriller which sets a tone of menace and fear by introducing a psychotic killer into the quite suburban town of Santa Rosa, California. Hitchcock claimed it to be his personal favourite.
Saboteur: the 1942 film, set during the initial stages of World War II, concerning a ring of Nazi fifth columnists who plot to weaken American military defences and cause a falsely accused man being forced on the run.
Bonus disc: Psycho: the 1960 film which contains one of the most famous scenes in movie history. Anthony Perkins is unforgettable as Norman Bates (a role he could never seem to leave behind) the mama's-boy proprietor of the Bates Motel.
On the DVD: with the wealth of writing and documentation surrounding the great master and his work, it would be a great loss to find this collection lacking in special features. Thankfully this box set does not disappoint. The special features are not only laid out clearly but they offer an outstanding range of information that will please any Hitchcock fan. Each disc varies in content but many include original storyboards and sketches from art directors and even, on one occasion, Hitchcock himself. They contain beautifully edited interviews or "Making Of" features, plus there's a trailer compilation with a voice-over from the great Jimmy Stewart. All discs come with a scene selection and choice of languages and subtitles. The DVD picture and sound is almost perfect, making each classic feel like new.
The box set offers a small booklet with details of each film along with original poster. The Psycho bonus disc, includes cast biographies and a theatrical trailer and the lavish package design makes it a great coffee-table accessory --Nikki Disney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Can Barry convince Pat that he is innocent?
Can they ever find Fry?
Even if they do find Fry will the authorities ever believe that Barry is innocent?
Be prepared for a lot of long winded speeches from both sides they do not add or subtract form the story.
Saboteur's (now much used) narrative begins by the framing, in a supposedly accidental fire, of innocent airplane factory worker Barry Kane (a proficient, rather than outstanding, Robert Cummings) by undercover Nazi agent, Fry (an altogether more impressive Norman Lloyd). Thereafter, Kane (eventually accompanied by the initially reluctant - and disbelieving - glamour model Pat Martin - in a good turn by Priscilla Lane) is pursued by the authorities, whilst by turns trying to shake off, and then convince of his allegiance, the film's group of Nazi collaborators. Whilst there are some holes (and moments of belief stretching) in the plot, Saboteur contains plenty of brilliant moments.Read more ›
This is a familiar theme throughout many of Hitchcocks films, a man framed for something he didnt do,but cannot go to the police,as he is not sure he will be believed,and he cant trust them, so then tries to clear his name before he is caught.
This film came many years before North By Northwest,which was a much more famous and classically noted film, but has the same theme running through it.Again, In the latter film, Hitch wishes to convey the vastness of the countyside when Cary Grant is attacked by the crop dusting aeroplane in the wide open spaces with little or no cover to hide.
This theme of man accused and trying to clear himself was very successfully approached many years later in The Fugitive for example, the innocent man being chased by the authrities who keep getting closer all the time,whilst he is trying to clear himself.
Visually the film is very rich, with a huge amount of scenes and locations. Hitch uses the camera lens to great effect when he shot some scenes with a huge telephoto lens from a great distance away, which really does imply the vastness of the country, and the mammoth task our lead "hero" is up against.
The famous Hitchcock humour is very evident,when the circus freakshow have their screen debut. There are two Siamese twins that are not talking to each other; the curlers that are seen in the bearded lady's beard when she turns in for the night.
Another recurring theme in Hitchs films is the grand climax in a public place, this time Radio City music hall,and at the Statue of Liberty, where the finale is held.Read more ›
Amongst several memorable and beautifully staged set-pieces, the lavish charity ball sequence, a bizare encounter with a troupe of circus freaks (a nod to TOD BROWNING's marvellous 1932 film FREAKS?), and the famous suspense-filled finale atop the Statue of Liberty, stand out. Terrifically entertaining Hitchcock film!
