          Comments about this product:

          Argueably Hitchcock's five greatest films. Tense and suspenseful without a lot of gore, cursing or explosions. The imagination, musical score and anticipation all make the above unnecessary. Truely the art of FILM making has been lost in recent decades. "The Essentials.." collection reminds us of what it once was.

              If you're a huge Hitchcock fan like me, this is the perfect collection. Likely his five best films, Rear Window, Vertigo, North By Northwest, Psycho and The Birds, it's unbelievable that all five are on one collection, for an amazing price. The film's all include extras, and awesome extras, and are re-mastered well, This is the perfect gift for any Hitchcock fan and is definitely one of the greatest DVD collections you'll find. This is an essential collection!
