Parts Of The Earliest Known Alfred Hitchcock Film ‘The White Shadow’ Discovered

The Movie God   |  @   |

The name Alfred Hitchcock is synonymous with mystery and suspense filmmaking, and even those not familiar with his work still know the name. The man is a legend, and will remain so for all eternity.

So you’ll understand the elation being felt at the discovery of Hitchcock’s earliest of works, a film titled The White Shadow.

Only three film reels of a total of six have been found so far, but the movie was first released back in 1924 when Hitchcock was only 24 years of age. He didn’t direct the movie as he would go on to do with so many classics such as North by Northwest, Pyscho, Rear Window, and Vertigo—that credit went to Graham Cutts—but he did act as writer, assistant director, editor, and art director on it.

Alfred Hitchcock

Oh how I love a good resurrection!

In news that is catching the undead world by storm, it was announced today that through the use of advanced science and with the help of a few pages from the Necronomicon, Alfred Hitchcock, famed director of Psycho and The Birds, has been brought back to life. Now, you would think a director of this caliber would have a ripe choice of projects to pick from, but his dark Hollywood overlords have decided for him, putting him behind a big-screen version of The Walking Dead as his comeback [to life] picture. This comes as even a bigger shock than the undead returning to life, as The Walking Dead is already a fairly successful television series — even with its unnecessary and unprovoked violence towards innocent zombies.

Peter Jackson is best known as the man behind one of the biggest cinematic trilogies of all time: The Lord of the Rings. As we all know, Jackson is a born and bred New Zealander, and due to its never ending beauty and perfectly other-worldly look, he crafted his wonderful adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s vision there, creating the perfect Middle Earth. The trilogy went on earn itself an incredible 30 Academy Award nominations, with 17 Oscar statues coming through in the end. Since then, Jackson has become one of the most recognizable and desired directors working today, and it was only a matter of time before some major accolades would find him.
