I like this one. Not like that horrific steelbook years ago which was in the top 10 worst of all time!

Actually thought most would be pleased the original posters are being used, and that the backs are matching in the use of the Hitchcock silhouette...

What do we want on steelbooks?
Original posters!
When do we want it?
Well not now obviously!

:laugh:

What I don't want is titleless covers. Why do they insist on those?

I think it just means they can sell it across Europe without having to do different runs with translated titles. The US versions usually have titles - eg the recent Backdraft steelbook.

If I liked the movie a touch more (and didnt have the 4 movie set) I’d have no problem with that. Pretty famous cover art. Almost no introduction (or title) needed.

True, that's certainly why they do it. I'm just having a real hard time accepting that. The title - in its original language - is, in my opinion, an integral part of the original work of art that a movie is. Leaving it out is a molestation.

Another user had another good point in that, aesthetically, removing the title creates an empty space, that's not supposed to be there. You're left with a feeling that there's something missing. In essence, they're destroying the artwork.

Old joke
German mountain guide to American person he's guiding across a narrow cliff path : You have to be very carful on these narrow paths, I had someone who had a dizzy spell and fell over the edge.
American : Vertigo?
German guide : down there.
