There's a murder he'd like to arrange,
But the terms from this psycho are strange:
Just dispose of his father
And it won't be a bother
To feed worms with your wife in exchange.
Farley Granger and Robert Walker are Strangers on a Train (Alfred Hitchcock, 1951). Welcome to For the Love of Film, the annual film preservation blogathon. This year, the subject of the fundraiser is The White Shadow, three reels of a previously unseen silent film Alfred Hitchcock was working on in 1924. All donations will go toward the National Film Preservation Foundation, and their efforts in recording a score for this newly discovered bit of Hitchcock history, and to streaming the footage online, thus making it available to as wide an audience as possible. To make a donation, just click here. There is also a link on the right side of the blog. For links to all the participating blogs, visit the intrepid hosts of the FTLOF blogathon, Ferdy on Films, Self-Styled Siren and This Island Rod.
