This is an phone interview from my Dial M for Movies Radio segment (14 May 2012) on ABC Evenings Radio (with host Lindy Burns).
It is with Brian Robinson, the communications manager of archive and heritage of the British Film Institute - discussing their project ‘Rescue the Hitchcock 9’ ; where they are attempting to restore 9 of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent films. (run time : 10 minutes).
- Rhett Bartlett (DialMForMovies).
In celebration of ’For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon III’
- I have decided to collate the final frame from every surviving Hitchcock film (apologies to ’The Mountain Eagle’, you are a lost film.)
So while you enjoy the link to the final frames, I would also like you to click on this link and consider donating just a few bucks to the National Film Preservation Foundation. They are attempting to raise money to allow online streaming of The White Shadow - the film that Hitchcock wrote (uncredited) and edited.
