    My set, purchased from Amazon in November 2018, is on 5 single-sided pressed discs.

    Timothy, Jack and Paul:

    Alfred Hitchcock Presents Season 6 was originally released on burned discs but there were several playback issues reported in the Amazon reviews and elsewhere. Very quietly Universal gradually switched Season 6 to pressed discs. After hearing about this switch on boards like HTF, I purchased my set from Amazon in October 2016 and they were pressed discs. I am sorry to hear that it is difficult to obtain Season 6 at a reasonable price.

    I would love to see Kino work out a deal with Universal to release Season 7 of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and all three seasons of the Alfred Hitchcock Hour.

    Of course, i would love to see Kino work out a deal with CBS to release seasons 2, 3, and 4 of The Defenders but that is a different issue entirely...:D

    Since this was previously released by Universal on DVD under their "Universal Backlot Series" banner, I'm assuming Kino will only be releasing this on Blu-ray.

    I watched Jivaro and the Nudie-Cuties 3-D disc.

    First, the bad: Adam and Six Eves is a fairly awful movie, though it has 3-D. It's jarring to see nudity in a 50s film. Equally jarring is a talking donkey. The Bellboy and the Playgirls is at least a little more interesting as it's a part of Coppola's filmography, though I've heard he made better films than this. If I want some pre-MPAA smut, I'll stick with Herschell Gordon Lewis. (Technical-wise, the disc is excellent)

    Like Sangaree, I was surprised how fun this and Jivaro are! Even without 3-D, they're good stories, a nice cast, and Fernando Lamas is a good lead. It's a pity these two became so obscure. As usual, 3-D Film Archive worked plenty of magic. I'm honestly surprised how good these 3-D movies are that are being restored. Likewise, The Maze, Gog, and It Came from Outer Space are also terrific sci-fi 3-D movies.

    It was said to be as such, however, when I bought the set direct from Amazon, easily a couple of years after it debuted, I was happily surprised to see my copy was on pressed discs (silver faces, rather than purple).

    Two other Universal tv series I would love to see Kino work out a deal to distribute:

    Amazing Stories - The Complete Second Season (Region 1 DVD release)
    Cliffhangers! Complete Series (all 11 episodes in a Region 1 DVD release)

    Yes it was. I think some of the copies though were also regular pressed discs. Right now it seems Season 6 is not available anywhere.

    I assume you mean a blu ray set? Have any of her films been remastered for a possible blu ray release?

    Thank you for the update. It looks like at least for the time being that Season 6 is out of print for now.

    I wish I had bought it when it was readily available. I didn't think it would be difficult to find now.

    I am kind of wondering about some of these titles myself. I have the Universal Story hardcover book that lists all the movies made at the studio from the silent era up to more recent times. It is truly amazing how many 'B' movies were made in the late 30s and early 40s: Plenty of westerns, musicals, dramas, comedies, etc. All really good stuff for the most part. Donald O' Connor, Peggy Ryan, Gloria Jean, The Andrews Sisters, Grace McDonald, Nan Grey, The Little Tough Guys, Hugh Herbert, Joan Davis, Olsen & Johnson, Broderick Crawford, Anne Gwynne, Jane Frazee, Allan Jones, Maria Montez and so many other stars. Then I looked at the ones made in the 50s and wow oh my goodness..how many other great titles still never released with stars like Jeff Chandler, Julia Adams, Tony Curtis, Rock Hudson, Piper Laurie, Shelley Winters and again so many others. What a wealth of material to choose from. I am looking forward to see what comes out later this year.

    Note sure about any monster movies, we do have some 40s noir.

    Yes, it includes some first time on DVD titles, some will make the home video debuts, meaning they weren't even released on VHS.
