BFI National Archive Finds Lost Film 'Welcome Mr. Washington'

Read More: Lost Disney Animated Film From 1928 Discovered In BFI National Archive For her 90th birthday, British actress Peggy Cummins was able to see herself star in Leslie Hiscott's "Welcome Mr. Washington" for the first time in over five decades. The war-time starlet was discovered and brought to Hollywood by 20th Century Fox studio head Daryl Zanuck immediately after releasing the now rediscovered feature.  Rather fitting, the once lost film has also resurfaced in time for the 75th anniversary of the BFI National Archive. Unfortunately for classic cinema enthusiasts, the full-length version no longer exists, but a new re-released version, cut by the BFI in tandem with Paramount Studios, can now be enjoyed.  Peggy Cummins said of the discovery, "I am absolutely delighted to be able to see this early film of mine again. It was at a key stage in my career and it was very important to me. »
