I've already seen the movie. I'm interested in reviews of the transfer and the extras. Are the extras on this disc as good as those on the other Hitchcock DVDs from Universal?

The transfer is really quite good. The colors were accurate and the framing (finally) was correct. I had no complaints about the picture or sound.

Extras are definitely not as numerous as, say, Vertigo but they are still good. There is a 60-minute documentary, a 9-minute "slide-show" of archive photos, a cool trailer, and the usual production notes etc.

I thought the documentary was excellent and I'm glad to see that Universal appears to be taking their time with the Hitchcock films and making sure that they all have decent transfers and extras.

i watched my copy last night & was very pleased with it. there is still some minor dirt & grain in transfer but this is probably the best you will ever see this film look.

extras were nice & the documentary was superb as are all the Hitchcock documentaries on Universal's releases. there is a nice photo gallery with the music playing the the background. also the trailer is a definite plus b/c all of Hitchcock trailers, at least in his later years, are the most unique & funny of all time.

i had not seen this movie in a while but thought that it was excellent. Sean Connery is great & Tippi Hedren is very believable. nice suspense & also has some good laughs.

definitely recommended.

I picked up this DVD a few weeks ago, and I'm very pleased with it. It's definitely a movie that gets better with more viewings. I urge all those who posted in other threads that they found it to be only a "so-so" film, to go back and give it another try.

I liked the film more the second time watching it. I had first seen it on TV and lost interest before it finished. However, watching again on DVD I started to really like the story. The transfer is pretty good, but not 100% perfect. I thought the colors looked very rich and it seemed better than anything I had seen on AMC. The extras are not the best I've seen, but the documentary is very good.
