I'd love to have all of these on blu, but I bought the Universal set last year as a bday present to myself for 50 bucks. Can't argue with such a steal.
Equipment:
RCA 39" LED 39B45RQ 1080P
PS3 80 GB
SONY 5.1 HOME THEATER SYSTEM STR-K660P
DIGIX BLU-RAY PLAYER BD-500

We definitely need "Vertigo" on blu and to have all these other great Hitchcock films on Blu and presented together would be a fantastic treat. Here's Hoping!

I think the OP did what you did after the crash and resurrected a lost thread. The original appears to have been posted on May 11th.
US/UK films that need to be on blu-ray:The Little Foxes (1941 Wyler), The Court Jester (1955 Frank/Panama), Thunderheart (1992, Apted) , Lone Star (1996, Sayles)

Foreign films that need to be on blu-ray:
Raise The Red Lantern (1991, Zhang), The Best of Youth (2003, Giordana), Still Life (2006, Jia), 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007, Mungiu)

Avatar = Stalker (1979, Tarkovskiy)

the studio's official press release includes a detail that "highly anticipated Blu-ray releases of Universal's Classic Monster and Alfred Hitchcock series" will street later in the year.

I hope this is true. Vertigo, The Birds, and Rear Window are a must.

Im sure that the Hitchcock titles will be sold separately, at least I hope so. The Birds, Rear Window and Vertigo are the big 3 for me outside of Psycho. Maybe at some point we'll get Frenzy and others.

I want it so bad! I'm a huge Hitchcock fan and all those movies defined and redefined how cinema is shot.

I'll answer your question with another question : Why would Universal bother to release brilliant set,such as this,only in Germany?

Btw,this set is identical to Universal's Alfred Hitchcock - The Masterpiece Collection DVD set,released 6-7 years ago. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000A1INJE/comingsoonnet-20
