Before The Pleasure Garden (Alfred Hitchcock's directorial debut) was released in 1925, Hitchcock's worked on a numerous silent films as both an assistant director and an art director. Now recently recovered and restored footage from one of his oldest, long-lost films, 1924's The White Shadow, has been released online, and you can watch it now at Film Preservation. (Via io9). Running time: About 43 minutes.

Since only about half of the reels were recovered, you should probalbly change that to "you can watch about half of it now".

1924's The White Shadow

I'm not going to watch it, because that way I can assume it's about an idealistic basketball coach in an inner-city high school.

But that's the twist!
(And, I wasn't 100% sure how much of it was recovered. You'll notice I don't claim it's the full film, unlike io9.)
