Hitchcock Lost (2013) by Dan Auiler
Hitchcock Lost focuses on the story behind the lost silent Hitchcock, The Mountain Eagle and the remarkable, unmade project of the late 60s known as Kaleidoscope or Frenzy. The two film serve as anchor points in a career so rich in realized projects that their absence tantalizes like the green haze of desire Scottie's desire evokes at the Empire Hotel. The book also recounts the other stillborn projects of the Master of Suspense, like the Cary Grant Hamlet. It contains a complete murder scene from Hitchcock's unproduced script and the director's own "adventure" tale on the making The Mountain Eagle.
