Rescue the Hitchcock 9

Alfred Hitchcock: pioneer, legend and master of suspense

The BFI National Archive looks after our nation’s film heritage. It is the largest and most important film and TV collection in the world.

Curators of the BFI National Archive have identified a collection of films in desperate need of restoration with nine of Alfred Hitchcock’s early silent films being the first to seek rescue through the Support the BFI campaign.

Hitchcock’s nine surviving silent films are among the most important in British cinema history. But decades of wear and tear have left them in urgent need of restoration.

Films

The Pleasure Garden (1925)
The Lodger (1926)
The Ring (1927)
Downhill (1927)
Easy Virtue (1927)
The Farmers Wife (1927)
Champagne (1928)
The Manxman (1929)
Blackmail (1929)

The BFI needs you to bring these rare films back from the brink and into the digital age.
