New Zealand: Some rare footage from Alfred Hitchcock's first film has been uncovered in New Zealand.

'The White Shadow' was made in 1923 when Hitchcock was 24. It is a silent movie in black and white.

Three reels were found among some unidentified American nitrate prints, which were left at the New Zealand Film Archive in 1989.

Hitchcock was writer, assistant director, editor and production designer on the drama, which starred Clive Brook and Betty Compson.

Media reports say that David Sterritt, chairman of the National Society of Film Critics, called the find invaluable and said that it would help study the way Hitchcock's mind developed over the years.

The archive described the movie as "a wild, atmospheric melodrama".

Compson played the role of two twin sisters, one of whom was good and the other was evil.
