Ditto. Great release, Region-free, and not too tough on the wallet. Happy to have it.

Network's BD of The Lodger is Region B locked, but looks fantastic. I'm order Y&I from them, as I want to support these and maybe they'll release more titles. It will likely be region B locked. I'm not waiting another year while the 9 silents tour the country in theaters. We have Downhill from Spain, which is playable on Region A, Easy Virtue coming from France, so that's 3 of them.

I wonder what that 9 film set will sell for. I guess the people who are interested in it will buy it no matter what, but a handful of those films are really only historical curiosities. It should be priced to entice, no?

If it only comes out as Region B, I'll have to look into a region free. Enough would be enough, already!

Your question made me curious how many I had seen so I counted the. It's 40.

I've seen every Hitchcock film from 1934 onwards. The films from before which I have seen are Blackmail and Rich and Strange and The Lodger is the only silent film of his I've seen.

I've been kinda saving a few, so to say. I've seen 30 with the most glaring omissions probably being Sabotage, Topaz, and I Confess.

On the other hand, because they're obscure films that would only appeal to Hitchcock fanatics who will probably buy them no matter what they cost, they might charge a premium price.

true. I suppose there's no point at which they'd "price me out." I'll wait for a reasonable sale from somewhere. it will probably be priced normally for a 9 film set with an MSRP below what the big Hitch box was set at.

ALL of them, of course!

He made 53 features, but the second one The Mountain Eagle, is sadly lost. OK, and he made a German version of Murder!, called Mary, at the same time. And he made the silent and talkie versions of Blackmail. Plus, 2 short WWII films and directed 20 episodes of his TV series.

Hey, I resemble that remark! But, yeah, silent films don't have a huge following I guess. These 9 Hitchcock's though are touring the U.S. so that should help promote them whenever they get released as a box set (hopefully). In the meantime I will buy them from whatever country releases them. 3 so far.

Awesome! I kinda figured as much.

If you have ever ranked them 1 through 52, I'd love to add your results to my 'non-scientific' poll that I referenced earlier in this thread.

in short, I accumulated rankings that were available on the web of people who had ranked at least 50. I assigned a point value, accumulated, and then of course... the film w/ the lowest total is the reigning champ, if you will.

ahh.. I thought no one would ever ask!

I've got it in an Excel file. I figured that it would be worthwhile to tally the rankings of those who have actually seen all (at least 50) of his films. I only found 4 different lists. If Mikey has a list, I'll add his.

Created out of boredom and curiosity. I wanted to know if there was one I should see sooner rather than later. Of course, it is skewed here and there (someone thinks N by NW is Hitch's 24th best film!?!?) anyway...

Enjoy!:

Is there any news/reviews on french edition of Easy Virtue? I believe it's the first official release of this film ever on dvd or blu-ray.

A local movie tavern is showing Hitchcock films this month. I went to see Vertigo last night, I reserved a seat to see Rear Window next week, and I plan to see Psycho during the final week of October. (The Birds showed earlier this month, but I've already seen that one on a big screen at the superior Fox Theatre, and I knew that nothing would top that viewing.)

The experience of seeing Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo on a big theater screen was really something else, and it really cemented my opinion that this is one of the all-time greatest color films.

Last night's viewing also reinforced the notion of Vertigo as a true film noir, because the nature of the twisted relationship between Scottie and Judy during the final half hour comes across even more effectively when viewed on a big screen. The final scene is so gloriously intense.

If you ever get a chance to see Vertigo at a theater, then take advantage!

That would mirror my list pretty closely. I've seen all of his talkies, and all but 2 of the silents. I have all the titles currently available on Region A BD, all Hitchcock films are first-days "buys" whenever they are released.

I particularly love watching his early films (Secret Agent, Sabotage, Murder!, etc) because you see him do things in small ways that he uses in his later films to much greater effect. Like a marksman perfecting his aim.

I'm one who believes there is no "bad" Hitchcock film; even his lesser efforts are better than 90% of everything else out there.
