Let me save you some trouble... the titles are mediocre to say the least: Lifeboat, Spellbound, Notorious, The Paradine Case, Sabotage, Young and Innocent, Rebecca, The Lodger.

Check the reviews on Amazon before buying this set.

Too bad because this would be a good set of lesser known Hitchcock movies to own.

@pyabo: Lifeboat and Notorious are not mediocre.

@pyabo: Rebecca is NOT mediocre as it is the only hitchcock film to win a Best Picture Oscar and of course, my personal favorite.

mediocre? you're a moron! NO Hitchcock is mediocre!

Notorious and Rebecca are among Hitchcocks Best, Spellbound is quite good and the rest are standard Hitchcock fare.

On another note, there seem to be a lot of complaints in Amazon reviews about the quality of this set. Specifically with playback issues, some disks not playing others skipping a lot.

fuxit i got one
my dad is really into it, worst case the CASE will be nice to collect
ill find copies of the videos myself and refill the box if these discs are screwed

best case, it ships before his birthday on the 21st and there are no problems

(maybe hopefully these are a third run of the discs or something, not a first run so the burn/encodes will be proper)

/shrug
we'll see!

I've heard some pretty horrid things about this site though. Anyone care to share their experiences?

@jpmoney2k1: I'll never buy anything from them again. Bought stuff from them that has come broken. When I contacted them they basically told me tough luck. Buyers beware.

@jpmoney2k1: I've bought several watches from them and a few other things -- never had any issues. I have no complaints other than the fact that it seems to take about 3 weeks (on average) to get anything.

@stemir2008: I'll agree that no Hitchcock is mediocre, but you have to admit that these are not of the same caliber as those included in the Masterpiece Collection, or even the Signature Collection for that matter...then again, this is far less expensive than those....for $20, I might just add it to the collection.

I've bought several things from them and have had no problems. Got a radio-controlled dog collar and a triple car charger. Haven't tried the collar, but it's nice being able to charge my GPS and cell phone, while the seat stays warm in this frigid weather.

I know this site - I got some headsets from them and a sd cart - never a issue

Call my foolish for Hitchcock, but I took the plung and bought the set. They do have a return policy for defective items, so I shall see how this works out!

UH oh, i ordered before i read the amazon reviews... I hope this isn't the bad batch that Amazon disposed of...

vote-for1vote-against

WalMart has the same package as Amazon with one review complaining that the case was shattered upon arrival and mentions the Amazon reviews of the bad discs, but apparently didn't get past the whole craked case thing....Looking at the picture I thought the case was to appear cracked as part of the appeal

Read the reviews on Amazon before you spend money on this! I was ready to buy it till I learned that the DVDs are faulty! Great deal if it worked!

I'd buy these if they had director's commentary. Alas.

vote-for1vote-against

I do believe, however, that all these titles are in the public domain. Buy at your own risk. Otherwise obtain these for cost of media or bandwidth.

It's sucks that that MGM apparently messed up a lot of the discs.

But anyone thinking at the movies themselves suck is either insane or ignorant to the films and just dissing because they aren't his famous works. Rebecca is worth the $19.99 alone.
