DVD/ Blu-ray: Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (18)


Not all of these 14 gems are masterpieces but at least three of them are: Rear Window, Psycho and, best of all, Vertigo, Hitchcock's finest and most unsettling achievement, in which the portly auteur twisted clean-cut James Stewart into an obsessive lunatic.

The other slices of perversity, suspense, invention and humour are Saboteur, Shadow of a Doubt, Rope, The Trouble with Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much, The Birds, Marnie, Torn Curtain, Topaz, Frenzy and the frivolous but fun Family Plot.
