  • In Belloc-Lowndes's original novel THE LODGER, the reclusive young man suspected of being Jack the Ripper turns out to be exactly who he's assumed to be. When Alfred Hitchcock directed the 1926 film version of THE LODGER, he was advised that the public would never accept the popular star Ivor Novello as a serial killer, thus the film was given a happy ending. Novello himself wrote the screenplay for the 1932 non-Hitchcock talkie version of THE LODGER, which, though updated from the novel's 19th-century setting, retains its original shocker climax. Well received at the time of its release but rarely seen in recent years, 1932's THE LODGER can be regarded as a serviceable bridge between the 1926 Hitchcock silent and the definitive 1944 20th Century-Fox remake starring Laird Cregar.
