    It will also include:

    A woman's razor
    One frame of THE micro-film
    A matchbox reproduction of the Mercedes
    A reproduction of the secretary note that says "think thin".
    A reproduction matchbook that includes Thornhill's warning message
    A reproduction booklet of all the items at the auction
    A can of alphabet soup that only includes the letters F, B, I and C, A.

    The Blu-ray of North by Northwest will be released on November 3rd.
    http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content/id/71110/north-by-northwest-50th-ae-r1us-bd-in-november.html

    It says it is from an 8K scan of VistaVision elements.

    ...the film has received a meticulous restoration and remastering especially for this occasion with Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging scanning the original VistaVision production elements in 8K resolution. The resulting presentation reveals a depth of field and clarity never before possible, only serving to heighten every thrill-packed moment of this beloved classic.

    Really looking forward to this, it should look great, and hopefully a lot more film-like than the DVD.

    Great also to see that WHV will be including a music only track.

    Since there's no high priced box set, I'm definitely picking this up!

    Great to hear Simon, I was not even thinking about it too much when I visited my usual source for something else and saw it on the display shelf, naturally I could not resist! It will be a nice addition for a viewing tonight. Hope it looks spectacular.
