The White Shadow update

Back in August, I mentioned the discovery of the first three reels of the 1923 movie The White Shadow, written and edited by Alfred Hitchock. The surviving footage got a showing at the Academy last night, and the article comes complete with a picture from the movie. Obviously, the announcement of the movie's finding came well after they originally found it, because there's no way anybody's restoring a film in six weeks. For a little more information on how the surviving footage ended up in New Zealand, you can read this article from the Daily Telegraph (London).
