This film is considered found
'The Blackguard' was a coproduction of the British Gainsborough Pictures Ltd. and the German Ufa. It was shot in July 1924 or from November 1924 till January 1925 - there are different information in the books - in the Ufa-studios of Neubabelsberg (Berlin). Graham Cutts directed the film and Alfred Hitchcock was responsible for writing and production design and he also was Cutts assistant director. Unfortunately there is no copy of the film left and only a few stills still exist.
