Default 'North by Northwest (50th Anniversary Edition)' - High-Def Digest Review

My review of Alfred Hitchcock's classic chase film, 'North by Northwest,' has been posted. One word describes the movie, its video and audio transfers, supplements, and packaging: fantastic! This one demands a prominent spot on every film fan's shelf.

Full review here:

Can't wait for this.

North by Northwest has to be one of the best movies ever made, and this transfer simply looks fantastic.

Can't wait for this to arrive from that awesome WBshop deal that happened a little while ago. Last one of my order to arrive.

Thanks for the review David. Hopefully we'll start getting more Hitchcock on Blu!!!

This movie is on my Top 10 greatest movies list and is a must have for me in my collection. All the reviews I have read have been very positive. Kudos to Warner for putting the time and effort into this release.

That sums up my feelings about the film, and hopefully the transfer is fantastic, or at least is as fantastic as the excellent review indicates.

Reading that review (again, very well done and excellent job to the reviewer!) makes me very happy that I put some faith into the studio to do a good job with that title so my pre-order won't need to be cancelled. I am definitely looking forward to being able to watch my own personal copy when it arrives.
