Title Best
Alfred Hitchcock Collection (Warner)R1

    This region 4 version of The Hitchcock Collection from Warner Brothers contains 4 very good to classic Hitchcock films from the 1950s. Unfortunately, the equivalent Region 1 set contains 9 such films. The extra ones are Foreign Correspondent, Mr & Mrs Smith, Suspicion, Strangers on a Train - 2 Disc Special Edition & North by Northwest. Of these, only the last two are even available in Region 4 at the current time. I understand that there is some sort of rights issue over the three unreleased movies which is why they cannot be released by Warners in Region 4. On this basis, the Region 1 box set is clearly the better choice. Additionally, Dial M for Murder is not in the correct aspect ratio in the Region 4 version but is in Region 1.
