It will be nice to finally discard my bad pseudo-PD copies of these, although with Rich and Strange gone I don’t have strongly positive memories of any of the included titles, though I remember liking all except The Farmer’s Wife. But I’m a Hitchcock completist so I will be happy to have better quality copies, and I’m looking forward to the Pinkerton commentary.

I really want this. Don't particularly understand why they all remain unreleased in the UK.

Seeing as they're owned by Studio Canal, I hope that Indicator would have licensed them in their recent deal. I'm sure they'd relish the chance to work on some Hitchcock.

And hopefully with the addition of Easy Virtue.

Owned by ITV, which is presumably why it's not in this box and why it wouldn't be in a hypothetical UK equivalent either.

(The early Hitchcocks are divvied up between ITV and StudioCanal depending on which ended up with the relevant production company catalogue. And if it's ITV, the most likely label to release it is Network.)

Hopefully a UK release of Blackmail is more adequately presented on blu-ray
