Not Best Quality, But 2 Classic Hitchcocks for a Great Price
(3 out of 5 stars)
"I am not going to re-summarize how much fun these oldHitchcocks are. I'll just say that they are the best of his oldGaumont British films. Look elsewhere on Amazon for reviews. This Whirlwind double feature is of okay quality ... The picture is mildly soft and the sound is a bit muddy and hissy (not too bad, but the occasional line of dialogue is hard to understand --subtitles would have helped!) But, it is acceptable if you just want to enjoy these two films together for [the] price ... I certainly did.For extras, the DVD includes a somewhat interesting newsreel from the time period and a crummy Porky Pig cartoon, that was beofre the good Warner Bros cartoons and seems to have been strangely edited by Whirlwind. The idea was to make it like a theatrical double feature from the late 30s, but it just seems like public domain stuff that Whirlwind had to chuck on. The poster pics in the booklet are nice."

"These DVD's are a steal. ... you get two hitchcock classics wrapped up in a snappy box with hitch on the front, with a few extras:intro by tony curtis, trailers, and these dvd's are all regions. The picture quality is ok. overall, a good buy."
