The First Hitchcock Film: The White Shadow

Before the Master of Suspense even made his directorial debut, he was involved in the making of a silent film called The White Shadow.  Released in 1924, the film includes the editing, writing, and production design work of a 24-year-old Hitchcock.  Until now, no one has been aware that such a film even existed, but the discovery of 30 minutes of footage from the title has just been discovered by the New Zealand Film Archive.  When the film will be available for public viewing is to be determined, but film lovers everywhere will certainly be delighted to set eyes on it once it is.  Who knows what insight this film will give us into the mind of the legendary filmmaker?
