Specs and Pre-Order Info for the Limited Edition "Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection" on Blu-Ray

On September 25, 2012, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing a Blu-ray box of 15 Hitchcock films in the Masterpiece Collection. What are the producers' idea of Hitch's 15 greatest masterpieces? Well, some of these choices are a little questionable (Torn Curtain? Topaz? Family Plot?), but the major omissions are few (Strangers on a Train should definitely be here. I've always been partial to The Wrong Man, which is absent).

You can pre-order the set now through here:
