I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my Dad and it arrived within a few days (the fastest shipping of everything I've ordered this holiday season.) It looks exactly like what was described on the site. It's a great collection of classic Hitchcock movies, exactly what my Dad was looking for. Also, I compared prices in stores and online and Overstock had the best prices on it.

If you enjoyed the old Hitchcock half hour series of the past, this is perfect for you especially since it is minus the commercials. Some younger viewers may not connect with the storyline of some episodes. Recently I discovered the series on a new satellite channel and preferred to have my own copy rather than wait for them on the telly. As a child I watched this series and when I mentioned to my family that I had purchased this season's set of DVDs they commented favourably. Thinking of buying it? GO FOR IT!!!

I first saw "Rope" on Public TV and thought for its era was an amazing study of absolute power corrupting the minds of two young men who commit an atrocious murder of a friend, "just for the thrill of it." Loosely based on the famous Leopold & Loeb true crime murder case that occured in the early 20th Century Chicago, this first technicolor offering by mystery movie director Alfred Hitchcock stars Jimmy Stewart in the unusal role as the ex Prep School Master for these two twisted personalities. Leopold & Loeb were two college students from very wealthy families who kidnapped a young neighbor boy and suffocated him; leaving him abandoned in a gulley in a nearby park. Loeb's eye glasses, of a style that only ten were sold in the greater Chicago area, were left at the disposal scene and were eventually traced back to the murderous pair. Intensive police interviews at a Hotel [taken there because of thier family's wealth and standing in the community] eventually bore the fruit of a confession by Loeb, and the pair were defended by famed trial attorney, Clarence Darrow [the "Scope's Monkey Trial"] who saved them from the death penalty. They were both sentenced to life imprisonment where Leopold died in prison. Loeb was eventually released in the 1970's only to live a secluded and tortured life as a infamous criminal until his death. "Rope's" plot involves a high society dinner party that acts as a celebration of thier nasty deed; and the ultimate revealing by Stewart of thier terrible crime. The background story feature about why, how, and who made this film is facisinating as well, and a nice component of this DVD. A bit dated for today's audiences, it is suitable for anyone over 13, as the violence is short and very tastfully done with a brief 10 second strangulation with the "Rope" This was a sleeper for Hitchcock, and an unusual role for Stewart, but it is well worth the purchase by any murder mysterly buff.

Every episode keeps you guessing until the end, and they are very well acted and directed. I don't think young kids would really sit and watch, because these shows tend to be a lot of talk and not much action. I also have Season One, and it's just as good. The price is right too... Mr. Hitchcock is the master!

Received quickly and in very good condition - saved a bundle by ordering from Overstock. This was just what my daughter wanted as she is an avid Hitchcock fan. It was nice to have Overstock do my shopping for me as I sat in my warm comfortable home. Placing the order was easy - as I have ordered from Overstock before, I knew that once I ordered, I did not have to worry about my purchase anymore. Thanks for making this service available.

I love Steven King movies anyway, but this one was great..however, he took a page out of an Alfred Hitchcock book..such a sad ending, I wanted to cry..but thrilling.
