This is really good news. I had posted just a day or two before that this is one of my desired box sets. I've been enquiring about this for years. Now if I can only afford it and the additional 9 seasons that followed it!!!

Actually AHP lasted 7 seasons of 30 minute episodes. It was then expanded to 1-hour episodes for an additional 3 seasons and called The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.

This show was a regular in my house when I was growing up.

Oh yeah! As a kid it was a show worth staying up late for on a Saturday night.
Nice to see it finally being released on DVD.

I don't care about extras... just give me a high quality transfer of uncut episodes and I'll be happy.

If you're a hitch fan will you like this? Did he write or direct any of the episodes? Never seen the show.

he directed 17 of the half hour episodes which were previously available through buying the hitchcock box sets from universal...he also did 2 hour long tv movie episodes. of course all of these were spread out over several years.

his bumpers alone are great though

Great news! I've had a lot of these taped off syndicated (read: trimmed) broadcasts from several years ago, and it will be a pleasure to dump those tapes.

(Also, notice that this has 39 episodes: that was the norm back then for regular shows, and the actual content for a half-hour show was about 25 minutes. Nowadays a regular half-hour show runs about 21 minutes and has maybe as many as 26 episodes.)

Sweet

Looking over the release list for late September, early October: it's going to be an expensive couple of weeks.

Even better news! (Assuming they're flippers, that's a lot of episodes per disc if not). The last $40 MSRP TV boxset I bought from DDD was about $23. Hopefully, this will be in the same range.
