Well done, Sam!

Yes you are exactly correct as to the correct name of the bloke pictured in the photograph.

Michael Caine, who starred as Inspector Abberline in the two-part TV series "Jack the Ripper" that aired in 1988. And yes his real name is Maurice Micklewhite. The story goes that the actor saw a movie marquee where the "Caine Mutiny" was being shown, and that he got the name from there.

Unfortunately for you though, Sam, our old mate Robert Linford at JtR Forums nipped in before you with the correct answer... He actually astonished me with the speed of the answer. I had only just posted the pic when Linford posted the answer... six minutes later.

Best regards

Chris

RipperCon 2018 Speaker Announcement!


We are pleased to announce that SARAH BETH HOPTON will be coming to RipperCon to talk about "Mary Pearcey and the Hampstead Murders."

Sarah Beth Hoptonís Woman at the Devil's Door (Mango Books, 2017) about Mary Pearcey and her crimes in Victorian London is her first work of historic true crime. Her second book, Deadfall: Mountain Mysticism, Moonshine and Massacre in 1890s Virginia, is due out in 2019 from Indiana University Press.

Among her past jobs, Hopton worked as a Florida crime and politics columnist for both The News Sun and Closer magazine for a total of four years. She recently appeared on the Investigation Discovery (ID) channel special "Bloody Marys" to discuss Mary Pearcey, viewed by some as a possible "Jill the Ripper." For more on "Bloody Marys" see here.

Hopton is currently an assistant professor in the English Department at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. She lives on an off-grid permaculture farm with her partner, two dogs, many chickens, a few pigs, and four rascally goats.

RipperCon 2018 Speaker Announcement!



We are pleased to announce that DR CHARLES TUMOSA will be speaking at RipperCon in Baltimore April 7-8 on "A Policeman's Lot is not a Happy One"
-- How civilian conflicts with the police alter crime suppression and investigation.

Tumosa lectures in the University of Baltimore (UB) School of Criminal Justice Forensic Studies program. Prior to joining UB, Tumosa supervised the Criminalistics Laboratory of the Philadelphia Police Dept. During his 18 years there, he worked on over 4,000 homicides and testified in more than 800 criminal cases. Tumosa also worked at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

During his time at the Smithsonian, Tumosa conducted analyses of artifacts including the Enola Gay, the aircraft that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima; the Statue of Columbia on the dome of the U.S. Capitol; and a time capsule from evolutionary scientist Charles Darwinís ship, the HMS Beagle. His research provided insights into areas such as conservation, anthropology and the mechanisms of ancient technology.

RipperCon 2018 Speaker Announcement!





We are pleased to announce that CHRISTOPHER T. GEORGE will be speaking at RipperCon in Baltimore April 7-8 on "The Legend of Jack the Ripper"

Yes, Jack the Ripper was a real-life serial killer who terrorized the East End of London in the autumn of 1888. Yet, human though he was, this unknown person has become much bigger than a living, breathing being.

Veteran Ripperologist Chris George, a former editor of Ripper Notes and Ripperologist magazine, discusses the worldwide phenomenon of "Jack the Ripper."

Chris will look at forerunners to the Whitechapel murderer, such as Spring-Heeled Jack and the London Monster and other sensations, and how word of the 1888 crimes spread to every corner of the globe, in an effort to understand why the spectre of the Whitechapel Murderer has both fascinated and frightened people for nearly 130 years. In addition, Chris will examine different candidates for the mantle of the Ripper and weighs their likelihood or non-likelihood to have been the infamous killer, in light of the existing information on the crimes.

No problem, Herlock. Michael Caine made a very fine Inspector Abberline, more true to the real police detective of 1888 than Johnny Depp, in my opinion!

Michael Caine has been around so long as an actor that it's hard to remember that he was once Maurice Micklewhite. The story is that he saw a movie cinema marquee advertising "The Caine Mutiny" starring Humphrey Bogart as an unbalanced U.S. Navy commander worried about strawberries.

Here we show the RipperCon trivia contest swag won by Robert Linford... The Daily Mail article about Caine getting knighted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth in November 2000.
