Hitchcock Film Discovered


The White Shadow, Alfred Hitchcock’s long lost film from the 1920’s, has been found (in part), buried in the New Zealand Film Archive.

One of four reels of nitrate film prints were uncovered—the “missing link” in studying the cinematic trajectory of Hitchcock’s career. Though The Pleasure Garden marks his official directorial debut, Hitchcock’s work on The White Shadow was integral and display “his visual and narrative ideas when they were first taking shape.” The film is going to be re-premiered in Hollywood in September.
