In addition to these titles, PT Video are also releasing a selection of Alfred Hitchcock films. The DVDs will retail for £15.99 when they're released on 30 October.
First up is Rebecca. This year marks the films 60th anniversary so it's good to see that the disc looks like it will include an impressive array of extra material including footage from a BBC interview with Hitchcock (although this is TBC), an interview with critic Kim Newman, an article by Hitchcock entitled 'The Real Me (The Thin One)', extracts from Hitchcock by Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock and cast biographies, film quotes, trivia and awards, The Creators (profile on David Selznick and Alfred Hitchcock), 26 photos of the cast, behind-the-scenes, three posters, production notes and even a hidden feature!
Notorious features much of the same in terms of extras - the changes are 11 photos of the cast, two postes and six pages from the original programme guide.
Spellbound once again carries much of the above, the changes being 12 photos and six posters. Finally The Paradine Case has 16 photos, two posters and three pages from the original programme guide.
