Re: The Official Alfred Hitchcock on Blu-ray Thread

Any chance Lifeboat or any of the other Masters of Cinema releases are region-free?

I doubt if Lifeboat will be, but here's a region guide for MoC. It hasn't been updated since 12/1 however.

Re: The Official Alfred Hitchcock on Blu-ray Thread

I watched Rebecca last night and it looked absolutely gorgeous - so pleased MGM is doing these right. Fontaine (who is still with us) was always wonderful playing shy, sweet types, though it was fun to see her as a manipulative bitch in Nicholas Ray's Born to Be Bad, which I believe still doesn't have a R1 release.

Great to hear Strangers on a Train is definitely happening. One of my absolute favorite Hitchcocks. Bring on the US release date!

Re: The Official Alfred Hitchcock on Blu-ray Thread

After a relative drought of Hitchcock films on Blu-ray, it looks like 2012 is going to be his year. Can't wait to pick up all of these.

We need Universal to release one of their big ones, though.

The 2012 release list posted on the Criterion Forum, which has been 100% correct so far, has this for 9/4:
Blu-ray Alfred Hitchcock set (9/4): Not certain, but thinking this will contain The Birds, Psycho, and Vertigo

Re: The Official Alfred Hitchcock on Blu-ray Thread

If Universal is mulling a potential second box contingent on strong sales for the first, you'd think they'd save their other top Hitchcock, Rear Window, to be its headliner, along with possibly Shadow of a Doubt and The Man Who Knew Too Much.

The Lifeboat steelbook is up for pre-order from Eureka - at 16.99 the cost is 2 more than Amazon's (after VAT has been removed from the latter), but shipping is free and they'll ship it roughly two weeks before release date.

Re: The Official Alfred Hitchcock on Blu-ray Thread

To Catch a Thief has dropped to $12.99 on Amazon. I was going to wait until it showed up in my GB, but I may pull the trigger at that price point.

I suppose a box set with Foreign Correspondent and Lady Vanishes is unlikely, as the latter was just released last December.

Got a copy in the mail today, watched the new special features (which were interesting) and checked out a couple of scenes. It looks absolutely terrific.

Criterion apparently teasing The 39 Steps on Facebook.

Nice. Isn't that the one that BFI botched with its Blu-ray release? I'm trust Criterion to do a good job with it.

ITV. It's...pretty mediocre. I don't regret importing it but would upgrade in a heartbeat.

That right, it was ITV. Thanks for the clarification. I almost imported it but was quickly scared away by the reviews I read.

Yes indeed, and I will be in for it. I am trying to catch up on the previous Hitchcock BD titles that have been released. Still don't have The Lady Vanishes and Psycho.
