This disc is only available as part of the 6 disc pack Alfred Hitchcock - The Early Years, released in Germany by Concorde. The Early Years box set contains the following discs: The Lodger / Downhill, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Sabotage, Secret Agent, Young and Innocent and The Lady Vanishes

Comments:

They look to be from the same print, with the same damage marks, but the Concorde is slightly cleaner. The Concorde is much brighter and any contrast boosting (which surely must be there) is not overly evident. The VCI edition looks faded and dull, but does seem to show a lot of film grain. There are no Extras on either DVD and only the Concorde offers subtitles (in German). Although neither edition is stellar looking, this is another example of why I should be buying the Concorde Boxset, which is looking very good right now.
