How significant is Alfred Hitchcock to history? So significant that when I just mistakenly typed “Alfred Hithcock” auto-correct jumped in and fixed it for me. Now…how many filmmakers are that important? Not many.
So I happened to be perusing Zavvi.com for some last minute Christmas shopping when this beauty caught my eye…
That’s right. This 16-disc monster is probably one of sexiest things I’ve ever seen that wasn’t on two legs. Fortunately for my wallet, I resisted the temptation to shove aside my cousin’s Christmas needs and purchase this instead.
The bad news: Zavvi is sold out.
The good news: Amazon.com has it.
The so-so news: At the lowest, you can purchase it “used” for $129.00.
