Hitchcock’s Holocaust Movie To Be Shown

A documentary about the Holocaust partially directed by Alfred Hitchcock is due to be released in full for the first time. The Independent reported Wednesday that the documentary will be shown in tandem with a new documentary, “Night Will Fall,” at festivals and in theaters, as well as on British television to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Hitchcock was approached in 1945 by his friend and producer Sidney Bernstein about the possibility of helping with a documentary based on footage shot in the Nazi concentration camps by British and Soviet army units. Upon first viewing the footage, the director of “Psycho” was so traumatized that he avoided the film studio for a week.
