You've done a top job of sorting these out already!

The PT Video Notorious and Paradine Case DVDs just need their ads replacing with that of the box (ASIN B00005NI8Q), as per the last one.

Replace The Paradine Case Prism Leisure/Fremantle DVD ad with ASIN B000CQ97V0.

All done!

Thanks! Now for The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934).

The UK Carlton DVD's "trailer" is just a brief advert for their "Silver Collection" and is not even listed as an extra on the sleeve.

There's a typo in the French DVD's runtime, throwing it out by 10 min.

Add to both comparisons: https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?d1=1919&d2=1920&c=630

DVD Footnote:
Note that this film and other early Alfred Hitchcock titles have been released in many bootleg editions. Supposedly "public domain" releases by companies such as Avenue One, Brentwood, Diamond Entertainment, Digiview, Laserlight, Mill Creek, Passion Productions, St. Clair Vision, Sonart, Westlake, Whirlwind and others should be avoided. Information regarding the copyright status of his films can be found at Brenton Film's Alfred Hitchcock: Dial © for Copyright. Hitchcock's films and their official releases are also covered in detail at Brenton Film's Alfred Hitchcock Collectors' Guide.

BD Footnote; this amended version can also replace the one on The Lodger, Downhill and Blackmail BD comparisons:
Note that this film and other early Alfred Hitchcock titles have been released in many bootleg editions, and these unlicensed, supposedly "public domain" releases should all be avoided. Information regarding the copyright status of his films can be found at Brenton Film's Alfred Hitchcock: Dial © for Copyright. Hitchcock's films and their official releases are also covered in detail at Brenton Film's Alfred Hitchcock Collectors' Guide.

Also available from Elephant Films in France.

PS:
The Scandinavian Future Film/Atlantic Film DVD box set is a boot. It contains films belonging to all three unconnected rights holders of his British films, something none of them would ever agree to. FF/AF have also done exactly the same thing with many other classic films. Of course, there are no proper copyright logos anywhere on the discs or packaging.

Bloody hell, James, phenomenal speed - I thought that lot would keep you busy for a while! Thanks a lot.

Ok, here are some odds and ends:

US The Lodger DVD: "Alfred Hitchcock Premiere Collection" ASIN: B001D8W7EA.

The Japanese Downhill DVD is a PAL-NTSC transfer.

Re Elephant Films' Lodger, Downhill and Easy Virtue BD listings: their French subs must be forced, as opposed to the listed burned-in, as there are various sub-free screenshots of all three online.

Kino Murder! Blu-ray extras:
- Murder! Blu-ray ad (1:12)
- Blackmail Blu-ray ad (1:15)
- The Paradine Case Theatrical Trailer (1:43)
- Under Capricorn Theatrical Trailer (2:04)
- Lifeboat Blu-ray ad (1:28)

The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934) German Concorde DVD has 1.0 mono audio.

The 39 Steps: I made a mistake with the just-added TF1 Vidéo DVD: its dub is French Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, not 2.0 mono.
- BD: Also issued in France by Elephant Films.

It doesn't seem necessary to update the whole page for that so I'll leave that one out. Also cannot find any reviews with detailed specs.

These screenshot reviews also say the subs are forced:

Could you add this footnote to the BD comparisons for this set, Mary and The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934) please?

I thought about that before asking, as I haven't checked in a couple of years. It involves searching for each film under multiple different foreign titles on multiple English and foreign sites, so is very time consuming. There certainly are for TMWKTM but if not for the others yet, it's only a matter of time. There's at least one boot BD for standard definition French-language obscurities Bon Voyage and Aventure Malgache, so these much better known films will surely follow.
