In Celebration of…
Alfred Hitchcock Presents - Season One Picked up the box set today (after selling off a slew of CD's in order to have money to pay rent. I'm a huge anthology fan, obviously, and, secretly, Alfred Hitchcock Presents is far and away my favorite of them all. I love Twilight Zone. Really, genuinely love it. But, it relies a bit too heavily on the twists. AHP doesn't. It's about story and acting, the twists sometimes non-existent. The acting, directing, production value are all top notch.
The Box Set is beautiful, I'm amazed ast the clarity of the prints, considering their age and the medium they were shot for, they're positively crystal clear. There's some spotting here and there, and the occasional dust particles, but, really, it's just a gorgeous print, easily the same quality as most of the Special Editions of the Hitchcock Features. I wonder if Hitch made a point of print storage et cetera.
Anyways, it's dirt ass cheap, for a ton of episodes, so, go and pick it up. It'll rock your socks off.
