Summary
  • Disc 1 : Rear window : based on the short story by Cornell Woolrich. A photographer confined to his room with a broken leg suspects a murder has been committed in a nearby apartment
  • Disc 2 : Vertigo : based upon the novel "D'entre les morts" by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac. Vertigo is an elaborately constructed murder story and a fascinating study in sexual obsession. A detective with a fear of heights is drawn into a complex plot in which a girl he loves apparently falls to her death. He then meets her double and tries to re-create the image of the woman he has loved but lost in death
  • Disc 3 : In North by northwest, an ad executive is mistaken for a spy by foreign agents
  • Disc 4 : Psycho: based on the novel by Robert Bloch. Psycho is a horror melodrama in which a woman disappears after spending the night in an isolated motel which adjoins an eerie Victorian mansion, inhabited by a disturbed young man and his mother
  • Disc 5 : The Birds: based on a story by Daphne Du Maurier. In The Birds, a small California town is attacked by thousands of birds
