The White Shadow

The White Shadow is a 1924 silent film long thought lost. In 2011 the first 3 of 6 reels were re-discovered, and those have been restored so that we now have the first half of the film. One of its major attractions is that Alfred Hitchcock was involved, including in the direction.

It can be viewed online at this link, but I can't find any pieces of it that can be embedded here.

Hollywood Reporter says
Sterritt, the author of 1993’s The Films of Alfred Hitchcock, hailed the discovery as “one of the most significant developments in memory for scholars, critics and admirers of Hitchcock’s extraordinary body of work.”
The picture at the top of the post is from, which is hosting the film online for a limited time.
