The British films of Alfred Hitchcock have always been his best. And films like The Man Who Knew Too Much from 1934 (not to be mistaken for Hitchcock's remake from the '50s) stands proudly with such titles like The Lady Vanishes and 39 Steps. I have loved the original Man Who Knew Too Much all these years. Seeing it so many times from crummy public domain prints, Criterion has given this classic from 1934 a new life! This version is digitally restored and looks fantastic for a film I thought was beyond repair for a good copy to be released to home video. This disc is not up to the beauty of The Lady Vanishes, but comes close. I film us fans thought was long gone out of existence has been rescued by our friends at Criterion. I look forward to adding Hitchcock's early work to my video library and show my friends where the genius got his beginnings. The original Man Who Knew hold up much better than the slicker remake Hitch would make some twenty years later. If you want the suspense that early Hitchcock films give us, then do not hesitate to include The Man Who Knew along with The Lady Vanishes and 39 Steps. These all are great blu rays and the detail on all these discs are beyond what any other studio could produce except for Criterion. They respect the classic films and it shows in these early works by the one and only Alfred Hitchcock.
