Saboteur, Shadow of a Doubt, Rope & The Trouble with Harry Blu-rays

Posted March 28, 2013 12:39 AM by Webmaster

Universal 100thUniversal Studios Home Entertainment is releasing individual versions of four films from the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection: Saboteur (1942) and Rope (1948) on May 7th, Shadow of a Doubt (1943) on June 4th and The Trouble with Harry (1955) on July 2nd.

Plans are also underway to bring six more individual Alfred Hitchcock titles to Blu-ray later this year. Pre-order listings and final cover art are already available for: The Man Who Knew Too Much, Marnie, Torn Curtain, Topaz, Frenzy and Family Plot, although exact street dates have yet to be revealed. The Hitchcock Essentials Collection, due on June 4th, includes Rear Window, Vertigo and The Birds, but plans for individual releases are still TBD.


Saboteur

Synopsis: This riveting wartime thriller stars Robert Cummings as Barry Kane, a Los Angeles aircraft factory worker who witnesses a Nazi agent firebombing his plant. However, it is Barry who is accused of the fiery sabotage, and to clear his name he sets off on a desperate, action-packed cross-country chase that takes him from Boulder Dam to New York's Radio City Music Hall to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Hitchcock's first film with an all-American cast moves with breakneck speed toward its final heart-pounding confrontation and it remains a suspense classic.

Saboteur features a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track and the following extras:

  • Documentary - Saboteur: A Closer Look
  • Storyboards
  • Alfred Hitchcock's Sketches
  • Production Photographs
  • Theatrical Trailer

Shadow of a Doubt

Synopsis: A young girl, overjoyed when her favorite uncle comes to visit the family, slowly begins to suspect that he is in fact the "Merry Widow" killer sought by the authorities. Alfred Hitchcock's favorite of all his films, made all the more chilling by the small town ambience supplied by co-writer Thornton Wilder, stars Joseph Cotten, Teresa Wright, Macdonald Carey, and Hume Cronyn.

Shadow of a Doubt features a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track and the following extras:

  • Documentary - Beyond Doubt: The Making of Hitchcock's Favorite Film
  • Production Drawings
  • Production Photographs
  • Theatrical Trailer

Rope

Synopsis: Hitchcock's "filmed play experiment," shot in continuous 10-minute takes, follows two school friends who kill a man for the "intellectual thrill" of it, then hide the body in their apartment and host a party. James Stewart stars as the boys' ex-teacher who uncovers the crime, and Farley Granger and Brandon Shaw star as the murderous chums.

Rope features a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track and the following extras:

  • Documentary - Rope Unleashed
  • Production Photographs
  • Theatrical Trailer

The Trouble with Harry

Synopsis: Harry's trouble is that he's dead, can't stay in one place, and has four people taking credit for his death. Alfred Hitchcock deftly blends suspense and black humor in this film, starring John Forsythe, Edmund Gwenn, Mildred Natwick, Jerry Mathers and Shirley MacLaine in her film debut.

The Trouble with Harry features a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track and the following extras:

  • Documentary - The Trouble with Harry Isn't Over
  • Production Photographs
  • Theatrical Trailer

Those covers aren't bad. They look like pulp fiction. I still prefer ScottDS' work though.

Rope's a good companion piece to Dial M For Murder, despite being "only" in 2-D.

Not digging the cover for Rope, would have thought Brandon & Phillip would have been on it.
Still day 1 for me.

Interesting that they're still keeping us on edge with Vertigo, Rear Window and The Birds -- the 3 I want most.

Those covers are absolutely horrendous.. Sabotuer is the only somewhat below mediocre. The rest are a huge turn off.

I thought the new Bond covers were bad. They are mastetpieces compared to these. Will still pick up Shadow of a Doubt. Incredible movie.

I suppose I'll have to wait extra-long for standalone Rear Window the one I actually want as they're hoping people'll buy the Essentials set now. Oh well, it's coming eventually I'm sure.

Even though Rope got a somewhat lukewarm review on here, I still have to get it. One of my favorite Hitchcock movies. Can't go wrong with Jimmy and Hitch.
