We have not viewed all of the enclosed DVDs. If the DVDs we have seen from this series are representative (the edition of The Lady Vanishes is very good), the video transfers may be slightly more contrasty, with a few more visible compression artifacts, than we would prefer.

For our reviews of the individual titles in this boxset, see our The Lodger on home video, Easy Virtue on home video, The Farmer’s Wife on home video, and Blackmail on home video pages.

Not recommended by us, the films in this collection have since appeared in better-looking home video editions.

This collection, and its companion collection of DVDs, were gathered for sale as a single box set of 14 DVDs entitled Alfred Hitchcock: The Early Years (DEL89062DVD) for the 2000 Christmas season. The entire collection, all 1379 minutes of it, sells for the fire sale price of $99.99.
