All the Universal titles are worthy BD upgrades. Some fare better than others.
TMWKTM '56 is problematic at times, but the majority of people would never see anything wrong with it. A restoration would be welcome but not likely to happen. Enjoy it for what it is..Hitchcock in HD!

The color problems really are troubling. Especially since the original elements, judging by their apparent state at this point in time, aren't going to make it much longer without a proper restoration. And I hate to think of this film (or any Hitchcock film) not being properly preserved.

Family Plot's transfer isn't a worthy anything. haha

Universal's Hitchcock transfers range from beautiful to "What the hell am I looking at?"...with a wide array in between. Most of the transfers have multiple problems, and oddly enough, it's the less popular films (Trouble With Harry, Topaz, etc.) that seem to have the best transfers. Ultimately, the very definition of a mixed bag.

List updated. The 'final four' are all coming May 6th in individual releases including ultraviolet digital copies.

Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds

Now that Universal has finished their titles, let's get going with releasing some titles of his that aren't on blu-ray yet. I'm talking to you Warner Brothers & Criterion.

Between Blu-ray and DVD, I have 38 of his 55 films. I still need to upgrade a few though.

im pretty sure the AU release is region free and a clone of the UK release.
there is a german release of lifeboat as well. but i have no idea if that one is region free...(but its probably region locked and not eng friendly)

Are there any other titles that don't have North American releases that are region free?

Correct. I own the AU release of Lifeboat and can confirm that it is region free.

i dont think so... if you get the 3 releases by MGM (rebecca etc...) and one of the big universal sets (not all of these have "to catch a thief")
and the warner releases you sould be fine.

lifeboat and the hitchcock criterions are the only ones not released by a major label.

The UK release includes restored transfers of the two Hitchcock propaganda short films, Bon Voyage and Aventure Malgache, I've never heard that the Australian disc includes those, does it?

That's correct. I believe The Lodger is included in the nine (?) silent Hitchcock films which were recently restored, so perhaps a region A blu-ray will be released in the future.

Warner needs to release the few they have not--Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Suspicion, The Wrong Man, Stage Fright, and I. Confess.
Criterion has 5 in the collection; 3 are OOP, so those won't be coming and have already been issued by MGM. the other 2 that Criterion owns the rights to have been released already, and they added Foreign Correspondent from Warner.
MGM still needs to release Lifeboat, The Paradine Case, Sabotage, Young and Innocent, and The Lodger.
not sure which US company has the distribution rights to Under Capricorn and Jamaica Inn.
that leaves only early British silents and a few early sound pictures plus Waltzes From Vienna (Gaumont) I believe.
So really it's MGM and Warner that need to release the moost titles if they aren't going to license them out.

Cohen Media Group bought it, along with a bunch of other titles, a year or so ago. They announced that they're restoring them all for new BDs, a few have already been released, like the Vivien Leigh set. I'm sure we'll see Jamaica Inn soon.

MGM only briefly licensed The Lodger, Sabotage and Young and Innocent for DVD from the UK owners.

Criterion already has Sabotage and Young and Innocent on iTunes in HD, I suspect we'll see BDs from them soon.

I knew there were a few others that Criterion seemed to have the rights to, but couldn't remember which.
