Nice! I’m not exactly sure how much this box will cost, but I imagine it will be worth it to many of you cinephiles out there. Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection looks like it will be a gorgeous master class in suspense. Out of the 15 films included in the set, only Psycho and North By Northwest have previously been released on Blu. The set is out on September 25th, 2012, so you have a few months to save up.
Digitally restored from high-quality film elements and presented in perfect high-definition picture and sound, Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection brings the Master of Suspense’s best work to home audiences as it’s never been seen before. This ultimate collector’s set features 13 films previously unavailable on Blu-ray, a collectible 50-page book featuring storyboards, costume sketches, correspondence, photographs, and much more. Plus a treasure trove of over 15 hours of documentaries, filmmaker commentaries, interviews, screen tests, trailers and a new documentary The Birds, Hitchcock’s Monster Movie, enough to satisfy even the most ardent Hitchcock fan.
One of the most influential and revered cinematic innovators of all time, Alfred Hitchcock had a profound and lasting impact on modern moviemaking. Renowned for his signature wit, thrilling plots, pioneering camerawork and original editing style, Hitchcock’s masterful ability to wring every drop of suspense out of each scene is still studied and emulated by filmmakers around the world. He was nominated for five Best Director Academy Awards, and four of his films (all of which are included in this collection) appear on AFI’s prestigious “100 Years…100 Movies” list.
