    Were there any? I can't find any. Do you have any examples?

    I'm guessing you're connecting this to Hitch's Mountain Eagle?

    I watched The Man Who Knew Too Much a week or two back and there was lots of mountains and skiing going on in the opening settings.

    Hitchcock and mountains anyhow.........

    That's right. Some of us are wondering whether the footage for Mountain Eagle could not have been cannibalized for some other mountain adventure film at Gainsborough (or even elsewhere).

    Where did you get the title from? Not seen it in the Gainsborough filmography - might be a working title for Hitch's film.

    Wouldn't the footage have been more likely to be used for a German film? None of these look very mountainous to me.

    Gainsborough Pictures [gb]

    But there's these by the German production company

    Münchner Lichtspielkunst AG (Emelka) [de]

    Think it was a co-pro between Gainsborough and probably UFA, they did shoot on location in Austria for ME but whether anything survived as stock footage in another production is doubtful. With the BFI Hitchcock hunt I'd have expected somebody to make the connection. Never heard of the title meself.

    What title? I though HS was just asking about any mountain-y films that might have used footage from The Mountain Eagle.

    I wonder if this connects to the cult of alpine films in Germany in the late 20s. The Director Arnold Fanck made several such films, often starting Leni Riefenstahl, which were hugely popular in Germany at the time.

    Whilst not a Gainsborough picture The Challenge 1938, certainly falls into this category :

    Ditto Autumn Crocus but I'm fairly sure neither of them used any stock footage - both of them got quite a lot publicity because of the amount of location shooting they had

    Autumn Crocus (1934) - IMDb
