Lost And Found of the Day: The first three reels of a six-reel film believed to be Alfred Hitchcock’s earliest surviving feature were discovered at the New Zealand Film Archive in Wellington.
1924’s The White Shadow, for which Hitchcock was credited as assistant director, art director, editor, and writer, was produced a year prior to Hitchcock’s directorial debut, The Pleasure Garden, and stars Betty Compson as twins: An angelic woman, and her soulless sister.
“These first three reels of The White Shadow — more than half the film — offer a priceless opportunity to study [Hitchcock’s] visual and narrative ideas when they were first taking shape,” National Society of Film Critics chairman David Sterritt is quoted as saying.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, plans for a “re-premiere” are in the works and will be announced later this week.
