August 18, 2010 Leave a comment
The British Film Institute have launched a campaign to save and restore nine of Alfred Hitchcock’s rare silent films.
Conservative budget cuts, which have included the controversial move to scrap the UK Film Council, have forced the institution to turn to film lovers to raise the cash needed to save these films from obscurity.
The Hitchcock 9 include;
The Pleasure Garden (1925), The Lodger (1926), The Ring (1927), Downhill (1927), Easy Virtue (1927), The Farmers Wife (1927), Champagne (1928), The Manxman (1929) and Blackmail (1929)
