  • Prophetic early Hitchcock

    It's interesting how many film adaptations of this story have been made. I've never read the novel so don't know how it ends. I have seen this film and the 1944 version directed by John Brahm and they end differently. Regardless of which is truest to the book, this version is an historic treasure in my opinion. Hitchcock was not yet 30 at this point in his career, but as others have pointed out it was such a prediction of things to come.

    Just a note to say that I had always wondered about that line from "Gosford Park" also. Actually, Maggie Smith's character is dissing Novello for his talkie remake of "The Lodger" which was a notorious box office flop in 1932. Of course the original version (though far from his best work) by Hitchcock was both a critical and popular success. It testifies to the enduring fame of Hitch's silent that no one remembers there was a British talkie version of the lodger that came along five years later.

  • Good Hitch Early Film

    Good silent pic,appropriately creepy Ivor Novello as ?Ripper.Glad it was proven like it was.Think this could've been good Baz Rathbone role,he of the beautiful eyes.

    Loved this silent,had to watch after hearing about comments on it "flopping" in the movie Gosford Park.Rooted for Mr Novello,he was good actor,and deserved acknowledgement.
