The Life of Keir Hardie

The Life of Keir Hardie was a briefly proposed film project for Transatlantic Pictures.

The first film Sidney Bernstein's new company will make is The Life of Keir Hardie, founder of the British Labour Party. Alfred Hitchcock, associated with Bernstein in new setup, will direct.
 — Variety (15/May/1946).

It seems likely that the project was initiated by Sidney Bernstein, who was a member of the Labour Party and had been a Labour country councillor for Willesden Green, London, in 1925.[1]
