Whether you're watching for the first time or the fiftieth time, you've never seen them like this. My original viewing of these classics was on VHS decades ago, then again on DVD just a year ago. Watching now on Bluray, I was delighted at the clarity of the opening titles and balance of the black and white. Those viewing for the first time will probably not be as amazed at the clarity because of the high standards of today's technology (not to mention the larger flat screen TVs). But for those of us who viewed on VHS, complete with scratches, spots and 15" TVs, it's simply the best version to date.
Each Bluray has an impressive list of special features that any cinephile will enjoy, but Notorious has by far the most and the most interesting. It's truly wonderful that these bits of cinema were found and brought back to life. Go behind the scenes and get a taste of cinematic history while being thoroughly entertained.
Don't forget that Hitchcock appears in every one of his films, whether it be in the crowd or coming off an elevator. Keep your eyes open!
