Black Angel was directed by Briton Roger Christian, who won an Oscar for his work on the first instalment, A New Hope. The 22-minute feature shot in Scotland is the tale of a knight on the way back from the crusades who rescues a princess. The original was lost and Black Angel later gained cult status in film circles. Two years ago Universal Studios contacted Roger to say the prints had been found and they were painstakingly restored. More than three decades after the feature's original release, he attended a sell-out screening at the Glasgow Film Festival.
