Dial M For Murder
Hitchcock's screen version of Frederick Knott's stage hit Dial M for Murder is a tasty blend of elegance and suspense casting Grace Kelly, Ray Milland and Robert Cummings as the points of a romantic triangle. Kelly won the New York Film Critics and National Board of Review Best Actress Awards for this and two other acclaimed 1954 performances (Hitchcock's Rear Window and her Academy Award honoured work in The Country Girl). She loves Cummings; her husband Milland plots her murder. But when he dials a Mayfair exchange to set the plot in motion, his right number gets the wrong answer and gleaming scissors become a deadly weapon. Dial "M" for the Master of Suspense at his most stylish.
The Wrong Man
The Wrong Man is like and unlike any other Hitchcock movie. The story packs tension, the images are spellbinding and the dilemma genuinely frightening. But this time the Master of Suspense dramatises the harrowing true experiences of a man tried for crimes committed by a lookalike robber. Henry Fonda plays musician Manny Balestrero, a man full of visible but unspoken rage at his wrongful arrest. Vera Miles is his distraught wife Rose, driven to madness by the ordeal. And the right man to bring the unsettling facts of the case to vivid screen life with documentary precision is Hitchcock. He made New York City a star of the film and cast real-life Balestrero case witnesses in small roles. He shot in many actual locations, among them the Stork Club, Manny's jail cell and Rose's sanitarium.
North By Northwest
Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is not a spy. And he's certainly no murderer. Nevertheless, Thornhill's a wanted man: enemy agents want him dead, the police want him arrested, and a cool, mysterious blonde (Eva Marie Saint) just plain wants him. A victim of mistaken identity, Thornhill can't afford to make any mistakes of his own - so he embarks on a death-defying run for his life. Relentlessly pursued by plane, train and automobile, Thornhill's cross-country chase finally ends atop Mt. Rushmore where, if he doesn't watch his step, he could be in for a terrible fall. Nominated for three 1959 Academy Awards, Hitchcock's North By Northwest is a masterful blend of suspense and romance, one of the best and most thrilling movie adventures ever created.
Strangers On A Train
Final release version with commentary by Director Peter Bogdanovich, Psycho Screenwriter Joseph Stefano, Patricia Highsmith, Biographer Andrew Wilson and several Hitchcock colleagues, aficionados and family members, plus the Suspense Master himself in an interview excerpt.

Excellent value for money box set of four classic films from the "master of suspense" Alfred Hitchcock. These are all early films made for Universal and as a box set fully compliment the larger later box set with the remainder of his work for the studio. The four films in the Set are: "Dial M for Murder"; "The Wrong Murder"; " North by Northwest" and "Strangers on a Train" If you have or have not seen these four films I fully recommend that you purchase them as each would brighter a boring afternoon or evening.
