Hello, yes I've seen it too. Though I wouldn't put it up there in the same rank as Hitchcock's original classic, it is a good movie about a "copycat Ripper." Both Alfred Molina and Simon Baker deliver great performances and it's awesome to see Casebook and references to the real life case.

Also, if you wanna check out another good JTR copycat murder series, check out the first season of the BBC miniseries "Whitechapel." You can find all 3 parts of it on Youtube. Just type in Whitechapel TV series.

Hitchock's original silent film "The Lodger" is available on Youtube. Go to https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...ock+The+Lodger. The 1944 non-Hitchcock version starring Laird Cregar (below) is also available through that link.



"The Lodger," 1944, starring Laird Cregar as the murderer.

The late director briefly talked about "The Lodger" in a 1972 interview with Dick Cavett. He wrongly ascribes the era of the Ripper to the 1890's. At 6.39 mins into the interview, Cavett brings up the topic of the director's very early films and Hitchcock cites "The Lodger" as one movie of which he remained proud. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Q-QAsi7Ge0.

At RipperCon in Baltimore April 8-10, David Sterritt will be talking about "The Ripper, the Lodger, and Hitchcock’s Existential Outsider" focusing on the Hitchcock's 1927 silent film version of the Marie Belloc Lowndes story starring Ivor Novello as "The Avenger" and the whole concept of the Ripper terrorizing London.



Scenes from Hitchcock's "The Lodger" of 1927.

Hi Chris,

I am sorry again I won't be able to attend this fascinating sounding lecture and get-together. However I wanted to add that there was a 1953 film called, "Man in the Attic" starring Jack Palance as a student pathologist in London in 1888, and he becomes a suspect in the murders. I advise watching it after seeing the earlier versions as it's conclusion is closer to Hitchcock's than to the Laird Cregar movie in suggesting that the case against Palance is not proved in the end, and Palance (sorry to spoil the film) drowns himself (though not near the Thorneycroft Torpedo Works on the Thames River).

Jeff

Hi Jeff

Many thanks. Hopefully we will see you at the following U.S. Jack the Ripper conference in two years' time!

Best regards

Chris
