    ...that is to say is North by Northwest any different than the current edition? Is Strangers on a Train?

    Strangers: Yes

    Northwest: No

    As far as I know. I'm happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.

    North by Northwest is different in that it's in a keepcase instead of a snapper, but AFAIK, the disc is the same.

    All of the films except for Strangers on a Train and North By Northwest are on DVD for the first time (in R1 at least). Strangers on a Train is a newly restored/remastered 2-disc SE. North By Northwest is the existing DVD, except it's in a keepcase rather than the 2000 snapper case. (Although, I wish they opted for the theatrical poster for this edition so that it would fit in with the other 8 films)

    If the info as DVD Times is correct, there may be a difference to the North by Northwest disc.

    The original version contains the documentary "Destination Hitchcock: The Making-Of North By Northwest" but the site lists the documentary "The Man on Lincoln's Nose: The Making of North by Northwest" in its place. "The Man on Lincoln's Nose" is the title of an Academy Award nominated documentary on the work of Robert Boyle, who was the production designer for the film. Probably just a mix-up.
