Great news about a great film!  It's wonderful that so much Hitch is coming in BD. 

Maybe Mr. Memory can fill us in on the status of some of the missing (albeit rumored) top tier Universals (Vertigo, RW, MWKTM, etc.)

Fantastic. Now I just have to hope it times well with a Barnes and Noble Criterion sale.

Paramount, please release DRAGONSLAYER on Blu-ray

I thought I outdid myself last year, but this is shaping up to be a bigger than ever July (B&N sale) for me.

Thanks for the tip! I've been holding out for The Lady Vanishes blu ray as I know B&N runs the sale twice a year! Looks like I'll add The 39 Steps blu ray to the list as well!!!

Does anyone know when the Barnes and Noble sale will start? I will be getting at least this, Gold Rush, and Anatomy of a Murder. Also, could someone please tell me which Hitchcock's Criterion will be doing on Blu-ray.

They've already done "The Lady Vanishes" on blu-ray, and the sale for Barnes & Noble begins sometime in July, so you have more than a month to prepare your savings for whatever you decide to order by then...good hunting!!!:D

Also, Foreign Correspondent has been licensed by Criterion but there's no release date for it yet.

One more month to go before we get this, I wish it was sooner. Im definitely in for Foreign Correspondent too. I hope more from the Hitchcock set get Blu Ray treatments as well, as time marches on

@ david steigman Where did you here that about Foreign Correspondent being licensed by Criterion?Just a rumour on the street or...?It's a WB title,so i still doubt it will happen.

FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT actually belongs to the Caidin Trust, administered by Westchester Films (formerly Castle Hill). They did previously have a licensing deal with WB, but that has since expired. Criterion has already picked up STAGECOACH from them, so it makes perfect sense that this is forthcoming as well. Other titles owned by the Caidin Trust that we could see as Criterion releases (one hopes anyway) are Rene Clair's I MARRIED A WITCH and Ernst Lubitsch's TO BE OR NOT TO BE.

It seems as if there were one of their newsletter cartoons a few months back that suggested Foreign Correspondent as a coming attraction.

FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT, I MARRIED A WITCH, TO BE OR NOT TO BE, BREAKER MORANT, HISTORY IS MADE AT NIGHT, and THE LONG VOYAGE HOME are up on Criterion's Hulu channel, so I suspect that they'll eventually get released.

TCM recently showed this in HD and it looked very good indeed. The opening only showed Caiden Trust and no WB or Criterion logos. If it's WB then hopefully we'll see a box set soon.
