Facebook feed today from BFI (British Film Institute) has shared the news of the online premiere of Alfred Hitchcock's early and long lost film "The White Shadow": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Shadow_%28film%29

 

Hitchcock was assistant director, film editor and set designer for the film, as well as being responsible for the film's "scenario."

 

 

Main film players are:

 

 

Betty Compson: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Compson

Film was long thought lost until re-discovered in 1989 in New Zealand, then it was restored.

 

 

Online film is 43 minutes and change (only 3 of the 6 reels of the film were re-discovered).

Film is available for viewing at the National Film Preservation Foundation website and they have provided film notes to go with the online movie...

I watched the surviving three reels and thought it was wonderful. Exquisitely photographed. Graham Cutts seemed to have taught Hitch allot. Betty Compson just looks gorgeous! I hope that the rest of the movie, the final three reels will yet be discovered
