Product Description:

This pristine collection features eight early masterworks from the oft-silhouetted auteur. If the 1927 silent thriller THE LODGER showed the world what a young Hitchcock was made of, then the crime tales YOUNG AND INNOCENT and SABATOGE ushered his craft into the world of sound, and Laurence Olivier helped the master bring it to new heights in the romantic mystery-thriller REBBECA (1940). A pair of classics featuring the radiant Ingrid Bergman--the psychological thriller SPELLBOUND and the quintessential spy noir NOTORIOUS--are also included in this collection, as is the Gregory Peck legal drama THE PARADINE CASE. The set also features LIFEBOAT, the unconventional World War II thriller that does wonders with just one waterlogged set and Tallulah Bankhead. Almost every one of the films is supplemented with extensive featurettes, vintage trailers, restoration comparisons, commentary from film historians, and more. See individual titles for more detailed information.

Description by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment:

One of the most influential filmmakers in all of cinema and voted the greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly, MGM Home Entertainment presents an extensive compilation featuring the works of a true Hollywood legend when the Alfred Hitchcock Premiere Collection arrives on DVD October 14. Nominated collectively for a total of 23 Academy Awards, these films are beautifully restored and remastered and feature titles out of print on DVD for several years. The eight-disc set is highlighted by Hitchcock's Oscar winner for Best Picture Rebecca, starring Joan Fontaine (Suspicion) and Laurence Olivier (Hamlet) in a dark tale of love and obsession. Silver screen siren Ingrid Bergman (Casablanca) makes an appearance in two Hitchcock classics; first alongside Gregory Peck (To Kill a Mockingbird) in Spellbound, as a young doctor in pursuit of the truth and next alongside Cary Grant (North by Northwest) in Notorious, a tale of crime, passion and espionage. Rounding out the collection is Peck once again in The Paradine Case as a lawyer defending a beautiful woman accused of poisoning her husband, the spy thriller Sabotage, the romantic murder-mystery drama Young and Innocent, the suspenseful high seas thriller Lifeboat and one of Hitchcock's earliest films, the terrifying whodunit The Lodger featuring an all-new anniversary score.
