A thoughtful, absorbing, and substantive work from the master of suspense, David Krauss says Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat is Recommended on Blu-ray.

Thanks for the review. Heard great things about this film and even though I own the UK steelbook I've never seen it!
So which release is on the UK steelbook, is it THIS one or the Kino one?
Also, do you know where Alfred makes his appearance in this film? It's somewhat ingenious
I never saw the film but my friend spoiled it for me.

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the U.K. steelbook release. If it's connected at all with Fox, then I imagine it would be the same transfer.
One of the photos in the review shows the cameo. It is indeed ingenious. Apparently, Hitchcock had recently gone on a severe diet and lost around 100 pounds (!), and he was very proud of himself. So he wanted everyone to know about it, so he devised this clever cameo using before and after shots of himself. The diet product that's advertised is fictional though.

Hitchcock's appearances in his movies reminds me of Stan Lee's appearances in his comic movies. Very cool.

I checked and there's nothing for the US version. They have the UK and the Greman releases and there is quite a difference in quality and and aspect ratio.

The MOC version looks quite nice, I wonder how this version compares. It might even be the same master used. Judging by the review, I would say so.
