The White Shadow

No, not the 1970s TV series; instead, it looks as though three reels of one of Alfred Hitchcock's earliest known works have been found in a New Zealand archive. Now, Alfred Hitchcock wasn't the director yet; he was only an assistant director and set designer. And so far, they've only found three reels; the movie was as I understand it six reels long. I don't know if there's any word on whether there's any chance of finding the other three reels. They've already found other interesting stuff in this particular archive, and the article doesn't say whether they've finished cataloguing the archive.

Still, even if it's only the three reels, it's always good news when they can find stuff that was previously considered lost.
