One of my favorites! Have the Hitchcock Collection on Blu already but glad this is coming for those who want stand alone releases.

Awesome news but the big question is...

Where's the original mono mix?

If the 5.1 mix is more faithful to the original sound design this time around then I guess it's fair enough if it's not included.

It's awful on the DVD release with all the altered sound effects etc.

Might pick it up since it includes a mono track, even if it is not lossless. I had picked up the UK box set and Vertigo did not have an English mono track, so I have been waiting for a US individual release.

I was actually just about to import the UK version last week after watching my old DVD of this haha. Guess I can hang in there a couple more months.

For those of us who aren't fans of "collections" packaging and like stand alone releases, thank you Universal for filling two gaping holes in your Hitchcock catalog with these releases of Rear Window and Vertigo.

Sounds about right that they'd start releasing the others individually, now that Universal seems to be starting to clear out the box set. The box is already at an encouraging price this week on amazon. But as it still doesn't appear to be moving very fast, I'm banking on it going even lower in the weeks to come.

While I'm not a fan of sliding discs in and out of a sleeve either, the collectors packaging at least doesn't feature that gawdy UV digital copy advertisement banner, unnecessarily cluttering and shrinking the cover artwork. Please leave the marketing to the specs featured on the back Universal or even much better, a sticker on the shrinkwrap since the dcopy will one day expire!

Great. I've been waiting on this for years. I almost bought the UK version last week then decided to hold on.

under 10 I'm in. I'm hoping both this and Rear Window will be $9.99 at Best Buy when their U&S program is on and then I can trade in both DVDs of these titles and upgrade for $4.99, it's how I got Psycho on Blu

You snooze, you lose, Universal. You held this individual release forever, so I imported a copy.
