American Treasures from the New Zealand Film Archive

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Professor Scott Simmon talks about the National Film Preservation Foundation’s DVD set, Lost and Found: American Treasures from the New Zealand Film Archive. The collection includes “Upstream” (1927), a charming backstage comedy feature directed by John Ford; “Won in the Cupboard” (1914), the first surviving film directed by and starring Mabel Normand; and “The White Shadow” (1924), the first surviving feature on which Alfred Hitchcock has a credited role, and other treats.
