Most of Hitchcock’s British films, and a few extras

 August 23, 2011
By Ed Pegg "Math puzzler"
This DVD set is mostly a collection of the master director’s early British films. None of his more famous US films are in the set. Also, two TV shows are in the collection, but they are not among the 17 episodes that Hitchcock directed. The IMDB rating is given, then the year, then the movie name.

Also, there is a 39 minute collection of movie trailers, and a 22 minute documentary with an unnamed person discussing some well-known facts about Hitchcock, interspersed with 4 very long clips from the movies above. Don’t get this for the documentary.

I’d already seen half of these films, and most of his US films, and much of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, so I got this set mainly to be a completist. Many of these early films were shot on a very low budget, but I still found them engaging.

You Can’t Beat the Price…

It should be noted this “Legacy of Suspense” set comes from Mill Creek, who also issued the nearly identical “The Legend Begins” box set a few years earlier. Surprisingly, this set is actually an improvement on the previous one.

The picture quality is still roughly the same. Bear in mind these films are not only very old but they’re in public domain. But for the most part they’re very watchable.

I tested the discs and found no defects in any of them- they all played without difficulty.

The films included are all found on the prior collection, as are the two episodes of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”. The bonus trailers are also here (nearly 40 minutes worth!). This collection also has a little documentary hosted by an older, sedate gentleman who rattles off some facts about Hitchcock, interspersed with clips from films included here (The Lodger, The Lady Vanishes, etc). It’s nice but NOT essential.

While better prints of some of the films are available on other collections, some are not. And the collections that do have them are CONSIDERABLY higher-priced.

Overall, this is a great value.

Very good collection and price.

Four discs containing Hitchcock’s early works that can be quite expensive individually. Great price and quite good quality. Have not had the chance to watch them all yet, but from what I have, I have no complaints!

20 movies for 5 bucks!! Great Bargain

I am extremely happy with the content.
I’ve been an Alfred Hitchcock fan since I was 12.
I’m now 56.

Good deal

This is quite a good deal for the price. While it may not have all the movies you can think of, it’s still a lot.
Wooww, nice product! I want to share this product!
