I would just like to clarify a comment made by another reviewer who wrote: "How dissappointing that "Notorious", "North by Northwest" and especially "Rebecca" aren't included in this so-called "Masterpiece" set." Well...this set is released by Universal Pictures which did not produce any of those films. "North By Northwest" and "Strangers On A Train" (as yet another reviewer listed) were released by Warner Bros., while "Rebecca" was released by United Artists and "Notorious" by RKO. Criterion had released worthy editions of "Rebecca" and "Notorious" as well as another rare Hitchcock gem "Spellbound". I just felt that the "disappointing" rating given was unnecessary. Even the "film student" got these wrong as well.

What a list of great films. Ok, lets see: The Birds, Psycho, Rear Window, Vertigo, Shadow of a Doubt, The Man who Knew Too Much, and all together? That's fantastic news! As with any collection of this sort, there are some obvious omissions: Rebbeca, Notorious, North by Northwest are some things you should probably pick up in addition to this nice set. Really, you won't regret it. All three of Hitchcock's films starring Jimmy Stewart are found here (and all three of them are fantastic) That said, there are some films that are less popular here. Although many of these are still great films, they probably aren't what you would expect from Hitchcock. The Family Plot and The Trouble with Harry are some of the rare comedies. Harry is a fun british "what do we do with the body scenario." Marnie is a drama that is put together like The Birds, only without any birds. It involves delving into the title character's psyche quite a bit, and mostly without supernatural help. It goes well with Sean Connery at the helm. While these are not the normal Hichcock bunch, they are still good films (much better than the usual filler these kinds of collections get- you normally see ones that don't even look like hitchcock)

Nicely done with most of what you need to be a Hitchcock fanatic.

What a line-up! Did somebody use the term "Masterpiece"? How did "Torn Curtain" and "Topaz" get in there? (Forget I said that!) Saboteur Shadow Of A Doubt Rope Rear Window The Trouble With Harry The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) Vertigo Psycho The Birds Marnie Torn Curtain Topaz Frenzy Family Plot + Bonus Disc What can I do? I own most of the titles already. I still feel a disloyalty to Sir Alfie if I don't get it. I felt the same way about "The Audrey Hepburn Collection". Oh, what the heck! I might as well buy it. They're all getting "facelifts" to boot! How can I have original one-sheet posters of "Psycho", "Vertigo" and "Rear Window" hung up in my house if I turn down the chance to own that BONUS DISC? I don't drink or smoke, so I'll reward myself (just this once!) Now you Hitch lovers have no excuse not to join me. It's only well-invested money. You can always give your duplicate DVDs to grateful friends. Maybe they'll reciprocate and treat you to dinner and a movie! [filmfactsman]

I have waited for a long time regarding an Alfred Hitchcock collection that would bring together his best films. It seems that it has finally arrived. Despite a few ommissions ("Strangers on a Train", "North By Northwest", and "Notorious") this set contains some of his best-known works ("Psycho", "The Birds", "Vertigo") that make its hefty price tag worth it. I'll be there for this one.

How dissappointing that "Notorious", "North by Northwest" and especially "Rebecca" aren't included in this so-called "Masterpiece" set. Let me just mention here that "Rebecca" was his ONLY film that won an Oscar for Best Picture. That is his most over-looked film, and it really is a shame.
