    What does "Lost" mean?

    Films which the distributors withdrew from circulation? Or films which the audiences chose to ignore?

    Watching Shadow of a Doubt this afternoon I discovered more birds! Theresa Wright is wearing a pair of bird pins on her blouse. I love iconography in film. The same way I like it in Renaissance painting. And I love Hitchcock for that sensibility. It's never excessive, but it's there for layering.

    ^ 'Excessive'

    I watched this clean print recently and I was rather shocked at Hitchcock's rather excessive class satire (which I'm sure he would NOT dare to do in Hollywood).

    Why not? America has as much of a class system as most other countries

    I am trying to think of an equivalent to the Herbert Marshall person in American classic films. I think we left that kind of character to emigres and your lot. Thinking of Jean Hagen in Singing in the Rain. ("I can't stand 'em!) The more exaggerated the refined speech, the more ridiculous. (The talkies probably did in a lot of actors who had previously played the upper crust in silents, who couldn't "refine" their voices.) I don't pretend to know a great deal about British social class, but I watched Murder, and it most definitely could have been made in the U.S., with equivalent dialect differences. Only it probably would have starred the Marx Brothers. And Harpo would have saved the day, as his honk was classless.

    Dear IlllIIllllIIii
    Not exactly.
    In a few words:
    We highlight Hitchcock’s neglected works, including various films and television productions that
    supplement the critical attention already conferred on his feature films. We also explore the director’s career during World War II, when he continued
    making high-profile features while also committing himself to a number of short war-effort projects on both sides of the Atlantic. Focusing on a range
    of forgotten but fascinating projects spanning five decades, Hitchcock Lost and Found offers a new, fuller perspective on the filmmaker’s career and
    achievements
