It's A Wonderful Life (Dir. Frank Capra, 1946): Starring the unforgettable James Stewart as George Bailey, the man who receives the greatest Christmas gift of all. A superb ensemble cast includes Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore, this high, spirited Christmas tale is Directed by the immortal Frank Capra and ranks as an all-time favourite of fans and critics alike.

Harvey (Dir. Henry Koster, 1950): James Stewart stars as Elwood P. Dowd, a wealthy alcoholic whose sunny disposition and drunken antics are tolerated by most of the citizens of his community. That is, until Elwood begins to claim that he has a friend named Harvey who is an invisible six foot rabbit. Elwood's snooty socialite sister, Veta, determined to marry off her daughter Myrtle to a respectable man, begins to plot to keep Elwood's lunacy from interfering.

Rear Window (Dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1954): Alfred Hitchcock amply demonstrates why he's been called "The Master of Suspense" with this both witty and macabre tale of voyeurism and murder starring two of cinema's all-time favourites, James Stewart and Grace Kelly. L. B. Jeffries (Stewart), a photographer with a broken leg, takes up the fine art of spying on his Greenwich Village neighbours during a summer heat wave. But things really hot up when he suspects one neighbour of murdering his invalid wife and burying the body in a flower garden.

Mr Smith Goes to Washington (Dir. Frank Capra, 1939): James Stewart, Jean Arthur and Claude Rains star in this award-winning 1939 classic about an idealistic, small-town politician who heads to Washington and suddenly finds himself single-handedly battling ruthless politicians out to destroy him.

Every single one of these movies is an absolute classic. I've been watching It's a Wonderful Life every Christmas for several years now and first saw Rear Window and Harvey five years or so ago. Only very recently did I see Mr. Smith goes to Washington but that's also a fantastic film. If you consider that the recent release of It's a Wonderful Life costs more than this box set, you'll know which is the smart choice.
Anyway I can't comment on the extras as this hasn't actually arrived yet but as far as I'd imagine they will be the standard releases so no real extras to speak of but plenty of language options for those of you who are interested in that kind of thing.
The films as I say are all brilliant, just imdb them for proof.
It's a Wonderful Life 8.7/10 for me THE Christmas movie to watch.
Read Window 8.7/10 (One of Alfred Hitchcock's best films)
Harvey 8.1/10 (All about a crazy but lovely man, another heart warmer)
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington 8.4/10 (proof that political corruption and greed are nothing new, excellently told)

Don't be put off because they are old and black and white (well Rear Window is in colour but besides that), they are all great films that are still relevant today. I bet you can't find another box set full of films rated 8 and above on imdb, especially not at this price. Do yourself a favour and get this now.
