Anyone who knows me is aware of the fact that Stanley Kubrick is my favorite American film director. He is closely followed by Orsen Welles, John Ford, and two more that figure prominently in this post, Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese.
Floating around the internets is an amazing homage to Alfred Hitchcock made by Martin Scorsese titled "Key To Reserva." It is based on a mysterious and incomplete three and a half page script developed for Alfred Hitchcock, but was never made.
From the Good Stuff blog:
Says Scorsese ‘it’s one thing to preserve a film that’s been made. It’s another to preserve a film which hasn’t been made.’ Together with Carta Nevada (the makers of FreiXenet) and JWT, Scorcese endeavored to make the film as Hitchcock would have made it - becoming a kind of hybrid director I’m calling Hitchese. But as with all good stuff, this is a supernova born from collaboration. The words of Ted Griffin (Oceans Eleven) were lit by Harris Savides (American Gangster) and made the cut by long time Scorsese consort Thelma Schoonmaker (The Departed, Good Fellas)
