I've got all the Region A releases except The Lady Vanishes (which I'll pick up at some point). I'll get the rest of the titles as they come out.

I've got everything that's been released that will play with a region A player, and the ones that have a release date I've gotten pre-ordered.  I'm still hoping that Lifeboat might get lucky and not be region B locked, but not counting on it, so am waiting until it's confirmed it's region B.

Lifeboat has been already confirmed region B locked by Eureka/Masters of Cinema themselves.

This is terrific to see so many coming. I own everything on blu that's avaiable for region A except The Lady Vanishes, missed that one. Looking forward to and anxiously awaiting Vertigo. But also want to see Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, and the remaining titles!

I'll update the list as new things are listed. Dial M For Murder is rumored for 3D (and 2D) later this year but next year will be 60th anniversary so...maybe then. Vertigo and Rear Window will hopefully come out this year as part of Universal's 100 Anniversary releases. MGM might release Lifeboat in the U.S. as it was part of their premiere DVD box set, and they did release the 3 BD recent titles. Criterion is always a possibility for more Hitchcock, too.

List updated. Strangers on a Train was listed and then removed in Germany. :confused:

I just picked up The Lady Vanishes (Amazon had it for 48% off, which with the tax break is basically the same as the B&N Criterion 50% sale). Also have Notorious, Rebecca, and North By Northwest. Not a big fan of To Catch A Thief or Spellbound, and Psycho wouldn't get much replay. Already pre-ordered The 39 Steps. I'm more a fan of his earlier stuff - would love to see Foreign Correspondent or Young And Innocent or Shadow Of A Doubt (my absolute favorite Hitch cameo). Rear Window probably. I don't like Vertigo, so that is definitely a pass for me. David

I dont have the UK versions but have all the USA blu ray versions except for Rebecca & To Catch A Theif. I am getting the 39 Steps, and the ones coming out from Universal later this year. I hope Lifeboat gets a US release, and would like to see on Blu - Young & Innocent, Sabotage & both versions of the Man Who Knew Too Much as well I kept Criterions Notorious and Spellbound DVDs due to different supplements. I might get Dial M for Murder

Wasn't there some whispering about possibly Criterion offering Foreign Correspondent at some point in the future?

Yeah, apparently they acquired it out of the same deal with the Caidin Family that got them Stagecoach

That would be cool - Foreign Correspondent is a FANTASTIC film, maybe they will slowly release all the titles in that Box set that had 9 Warner Hitchcock titles ( I Confess, Th Wrong Man, Strangers on a Train etc )

Foreign Correspondent is among the titles Criterion offers on Hulu.... seems like a blu-ray release is certainly possible. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/

I would love to see Criterion release this great film...which was nominated along with Rebecca (which won) for best picture. Not bad for the first 2 films he made in America! There is a listing on Amazon Germany for The Alfred Hitchcock Blu-ray Collection from Warners Bros. This would likely include Dial M For Murder, The Wrong Man, Strangers on a Train, Stage Fright, I Confess and maybe Suspicion. It would make sense that they would release a blu-ray box set similar to the DVD set they own the rights to. I still think Dial M will be a single Digibook release, as well.

Added The Lodger. BFI's FB page answered my question about the newly restored 9 silent Hitchcock's, and they responded to me about any future blu-ray releases with this: Thanks for your question. We don't hold the rights to these titles, but are aware that Network will be releasing The Lodger in September. This company released British TV like The Prisoner and The Persuaders on blu-ray, so, let's hope.

It's inevitable. The question is *when*. It could be this year, or could be next year. Or 2014. They just need to schedule it among the other several dozen titles they have in the pipeline.


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932
