More than 60 b/w photographs. No one has seen Alfred Hitchcock’s silent picture ‘The mountain eagle’ in over sixty years. Twelve of the early films of one of Britain’s greatest film-makers, Michael Powell, are lost. These are just a fraction of the several hundred British features which have gone missing since their first release. Most will almost certainly never be found, but there is always a chance that a print still survives on a shelf in some dusty cupboard. Not all these lost films are masterpieces. But many valuable parts of our film heritage could still be rescued with a concerted search and a little luck. In this book the National Film Archive has selected the one hundred British features which it would most like to find. Each of the missing films is described, with full credits and with illustrative stills, where any survive. For good measure there are brief details of some key British documentaries and television programmes which the Archive would also dearly love to locate. This book marks the systematic attempt by the National Film Archive to initiate a public search for Britain’s lost films.
