While the film takes Polanski somewhat back to his comedic roots — and the days of Fearless Vampire Killers — one of the director’s more serious efforts seems ripe for a revisit.

D'un abri de jardin à Hollywood, le destin du premier film de Hitchcock | On Hollywood Film Industry | Scoop.it

Le premier film connu d'Alfred Hitchcock sera projeté pour la première fois cette semaine à Los Angeles, après la découverte en Nouvelle-Zélande des précieuses bobines qu'un projectionniste a conservées dans les années 20, contrairement aux usages.
C'est dans un abri de jardin à Hastings, dans l'île du nord de la Nouvelle-Zélande, que croupissaient depuis des décennies les trois premières bobines de "The White Shadow" (L'ombre blanche), tourné en 1923. Des centaines d'autres films muets y ont été découverts.
