By 2012, the British Film Institute National Archive’s Rescue the Hitchcock 9 project is scheduled to issue fully restored version of 9 of the 10 films that Alfred Hitchcock directed during the 1920s, reports The Guardian. Only Hitchcock’s second film, The Mountain Eagle, from 1926, is eluding restoration, and only because it remains lost. The Guardian’s Henry K Miller explains what happened to Hitchcock’s early work, and how the restoration came about as part of Britain’s 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
