This review is from: Alfred Hitchcock Collection: Dial M for Murder / North By Northwest / Strangers on a Train [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
If you are like me then you would already by now own the Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection. Sadly Australia and the UK didn't receive a copy of North By Northwest. Now we can have NBNW (Looks like the identical disc used in the 50th anniversary US release) plus 2 other movies. Strangers on A Train and a Blu-ray 3D version of Dial M for Murder!
Just when I thought we were so unlucky and the US get everything, this comes along and surprises me. US customers will now have to buy the other 2 movies separately or buy this UK set.

I don't see any info that states a Blu-ray 3D version of Dial M for Murder!

Every single country is releasing it in Blu-ray 3D. I can't find anywhere that says there is a Non 3D version? Do a Google search and see for yourself. :)

well yeah kind of, but....the US already have a pretty good edition of Strangers on a Train and the same poor, lacklustre edition of Dial M. And they already have great editions of Rebecca, Notorious, To Catch A Thief, Spellbound, 39 Steps, The Lady Vanishes and Man Who Knew Too Much (original) I think in the UK we still got a lot of catching up to do sadly :/

Correct, I already own the previously released NBNW anyway, two films for £30? Nah.....

Yeah and the NBNW blu-ray is a stunner! The Dial M disc here has been getting terrible reviews.

Ha Ha, I have the UK edition of the collection. Way cheaper than the US version and now I'm getting this set :-)
In all I've paid $170.00 dollars for it all.
I might never open this movie packages, they look so much better unopened.
I got this pack with the Cyber Monday deal this morning (6am USA) for $11 UK pounds.

Does it also contain the 2D version of Dial M for Murder?

Also Boggart, the UK is releasing many more classics on blu ray that no studio in the US would risk losing money on.
These UK releases is why this American got himself a region free blu ray player. They are good about releasing crap here in the states, whereas the UK is getting great films released on home video. I buy much more titles here on Amazon UK.
