Lifeboat is coming out on Blu-ray in April in the UK.

I've got mine pre-ordered:

Lists like these can be so subjective. All the films listed are classics in their own right and still there are so many great (and in my opinion better) Hitch films left off the list. Films such as Frenzy, Foriegn Correspondent, Sabatuer, The 39 Steps (needs a stateside release), heck even those two crazy war propaganda films deserve to be on the lists.

Agreed. This is my list, but I'm sure many people have different Hitchcock movies in mind that they'd love to see on Blu-ray.

What Hitchcock has been released? Article mentions these:
Rebecca,'
'Spellbound,'
'Notorious.'
'To Catch a Thief'

Offhand I can think of North By North West and a terrible version of The 39 Steps.

If I remember right the BFI are working on remastering his 9 remaining early silent films, I imagine those will appear in the UK at some point - if they raise the money!

when it comes to hitchcock there are no right or wrong answers.. Aaron has a fine list, im sure everyone would pick different titles.. ask 10 people what there favorite hitchcock film is and you'll probably get 7 or 8 different answers

AP u forgot to mention Psycho is out on Blu.. isnt that his highest grossing film ever?

My favourite is actually Rope. There's just something I find so fascinating about the way it was done.

I have NORTH BY NORTHWEST and TO CATCH A THIEF. Both look fabulous and great films. I love the VistaVision look and cannot wait till VERTIGO and REAR WINDOW come to Bluray!

Apparently they are included as bonus features on the Lifeboat UK release mentioned by cheez avenger!

According to play.com => "New high-definition transfers of Hitchcock's little-seen French-language 1944 wartime films, Bon voyage (26 minutes) and Aventure malgache (31 minutes) officially licensed from the British Film Institute"
