The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) Blu-ray

Posted May 24, 2013 10:54 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thUniversal Studios Home Entertainment is releasing filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956), starring James Stewart, Doris Day, Brenda de Banzie, Bernard Miles, Ralph Truman, Daniel Gélin, Mogens Wieth and Alan Mowbray. Previously available as part of the Alfred Hitchcock: Masterpiece Collection, the single-disc release of the international intrigue thriller arrives on Blu-ray on August 6th.

Synopsis: Hitchcock didn't make a habit of repeating himself, but that didn't stop him from bringing two different versions of The Man Who Knew Too Much to the screen: the first in 1934, which the Master of Suspense later likened to "the work of a talented amateur," and the second in 1956, which he touted as being "made by a professional." The thriller follows American tourists Ben and Josephine McKenna (Stewart and Day) who, while vacationing in Morocco, learns of a plot to assassinate the Prime Minister at the Royal Albert Hall. However, he can't turn to the police without endangering his young son (Christopher Olsen), who's been kidnapped to ensure McKenna's silence.

The Blu-ray edition of The Man Who Knew Too Much features a 1080p video presentation, a two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track, and several extras:

  • The Making of The Man Who Knew Too Much
  • Production Photographs
  • Theatrical Trailer

Good. Now bring on Rear Window and Vertigo to complete the Jimmy Stewart/Hitchcock quadrilogy!

They're already done and available in the Masterpiece Collection, so it's just a matter of time before they too get individual releases. I'd love to see The Man Who Knew Too Little represented on BD at last too, but I think that's Warner.

A Sub-Par Hitch, especially compared to the '34 version. Would much rather have Rear Window and Vertigo as well, even The Birds, though I fear The Birds on Blu will really exaggerate the matte shots of the birds

Too bad they're not giving us a restored transfer. The current one is an abomonation.

If this is anything like the single releases of Saboteur and Shadow of a Doubt, good luck finding it in stores!

I think this, Rear Window and Vertigo are among the most overrated movies in cinema history. Hitchcock has some good ones (Strangers on a Train, The Lady Vanishes, Dial M for Murder) but it's amazing how many times I see movies like these, The Birds & Psycho mentioned.

The transfer isnt an abomination...it's UNWATCHABLE!!!!

I kept my old hitchcock collection JUST because the dvd is a passable transfer. But te bluray one is so bad! I'm not kidding!! Read the reviews for yourself. I thought the colour fluctuation (which is almost strobe like) was te result of my tv having a heart attack - when it was the disc!!!!

No need for anyone to buy this disc as long as Universal doesn't improve the transfer. It is by far the worst of the bunch. A real shame! This movie deserves much better!

In screen shot #7 at least Hitch could've gotten the foreground and background shadows to match. I thought he said this version was done by a professional.
