|The daughter of a traitor is coerced by a handsome governemnt agent into renewing an old friendship with a suspected nazi sympathizer in south america during WWII.|
Editor's NoteThis 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.
Poor seller packaging & manufacturing defects3/14/2011
The DVD set arrived in a bubble envelope which probably caused the cracked plastic case. A poor way to ship something this heavy and delicate. All 8 DVDs are either chipped, unplayable or skip. Read other online reviews of similar problems experienced by buyers.
