“ Alfred Hitchcock was a frugal man, probably as a result of his Jesuit upbringing. His daughter Patricia says: "He did not go in for fancy cars, racehorses, yachts or any of the other Hollywood accoutrements. He was very, very conservative and used to say, 'I never want to risk anything'." When he died in 1980, he left considerable wealth, mainly in stocks and bonds, and two luxurious Californian estates, one in Bel Air and the other in the magnificent redwoods of Santa Cruz. But there was another bequest to his family, which he jealously guarded and which should provide them with an income as long as the cinema survives: five of his famous films.

These were pictures he had removed from circulation several years before, ordering that all the prints should be destroyed. Some have not been shown, legally at least, since the 1960s, and their long disappearance has led them to be dubbed "the missing Hitchcocks". Just why he should have deliberately suppressed some of his most admired work for so long is the final Hitchcock mystery.

The five include two of the best he ever made in his 50 years as a director, Rear Window and Vertigo. Another, The Trouble With Harry, was one of his personal favourites. The others are Rope, with its intriguing experiment with the 10-minute takes, and the 1956 remake of his popular British thriller of the 1930s, The Man Who Knew Too Much. ” - jacentko

“ Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Writer: Anita Ross
Stars:Clare Greet and Ernest Thesiger...

This is the first film Alfred Hitchcock ever directed, sometime in late 1922 or early 1923. The story was about low-income residents of a building. It was written by a woman employed at Islington, her precise identity unknown. Even the film's title is unclear: Islington Studios' records listed it as being "Mrs. Peabody", but Hitchcock always referred to it as Number 13 (possibly because it was the thirteenth film he was involved in making, in some capacity) Hitchcock's uncle Joseph invested in the film, and when the funds ran out, star Clare Greet also pitched in funding. But the filming was ultimately shut down with only two reels of film completed. Despite the fact that several people have rated it here on IMDb, the picture was never actually completed or shown, but Adrian Brunel claims Hitchcock showed it to him in an unfinished state. The footage filmed is now long-lost, and nothing else is known about it, apart from Hitchcock's alleged assertion that it wasn't very interesting. ” - jacentko
