Rescue the Hitchcock 9 - The BFI Needs Our Help!

The British Film Institute needs our help! The 9 surviving silent films of Alfred Hitchcock need restoration and preservation. The blogoshpere came together in in February For the Love of Film and helped raise money for the National Film Preservation Foundation. Can you spare $1, $5, $10, or more to help save these important films?

The BFI site has a lot of information and has posted this fabulous commercial on their youtube channel and I encourage you to watch it and please make a donation. It made me want to give some filthy lucre.

What are The Hitchcock 9?

The Pleasure Garden (1925)
The Lodger (1926)
The Ring (1927)
Downhill (1927)
Easy Virtue (1927)
The Farmers Wife (1927)
The Manxman (1929)
Blackmail (1929)
In a perfect world someone would also turn up a print of The Mountain Eagle. Yeah, you know why I wanna see that, yes it's Hitch and YES, it's Nita Naldi.

We've done it before! Let's do it again! Help spread the word about this worthy cause.

Tinky Hitch was a gourmand, can't be that hard!
Ingrid Bergman relates a story of dining with Hitch in which they both got snockered and slept on the sofa with no dinner consumed.

Great initiative by British films.Over a career spanning more than half a century, Hitchcock fashioned for himself a distinctive and recognisable directorial style.
