Posted by David Lambert
Legendary, award-winning and suspenseful, Alfred Hitchcock Presents set the gold standard for all TV mystery series to come and has remained an indelible part of popular culture. And now, the complete fourth season - all 36 episodes - is available on DVD for fans to enjoy again and again.
Join guest stars Steve McQueen (Bullitt), Bette Davis (All About Eve), Claude Rains (Casablanca), Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein), Roger Moore (The Spy Who Loved Me), Walter Matthau (The Odd Couple), Brian Keith (Family Affair), Elizabeth Montgomery (Bewitched), Art Carney (Harry and Tonto), Mary Astor (The Maltese Falcon), Barbara Bel Geddes (Dallas), Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Dick York (Bewitched), Leslie Nielsen (Airplane!) and more as they act in stories of intrigue and murder...all under the watchful eye of the Master of Suspense himself.
Nominated for 15 Primetime Emmy® Awards, and winner of 3 Primetime Emmy® Awards plus the Golden Globe® for Television Achievement, there's no question why this show remains one of the most beloved classic series ever made.
This past February we had a hint from the studio that Alfred Hitchcock Presents - Season 4 was on the way to DVD this fall, and today Univesal made it official with their formal announcement of the 4-disc set. The 931-minute collection includes all 36 episodes, plus the bonus featurette "Fasten Your Seatbelt: The Thrilling Art of Alfred Hitchcock."
The episodes are presented in the original black-and-white full screen video, with audio in English mono and English subtitles as well. Cost is $39.98 SRP. While the previous three season set releases have always occurred in October, presumably to let people enjoy these as part of their Halloween celebration, this time Universal is scheduling the set for November 24th (the Tuesday before Thanksgiving). Below we've got a look at a pair of the menu screens from this release, followed by a high-res picture of the packaging itself:
