There is never a bad time to celebrate the legendary career of the late Alfred Hitchcock, but with no less than two biopics rounding off 2012 in the form of both HITCHCOCK and THE GIRL, now may be one of the best times ever to look back at his astonishing career and the great many masterpieces that he gave us.
Now, whether you're a devout fan of his work or you've had your appetite whet by the likes of PSYCHO or VERTIGO and are keen to delve into more, the newly released Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection – featuring 14 titles on dazzling Blu-ray – is an absolute must.
