This week we’re going back to the roaring 20’s, covering up our lovely blond curls, and avenging the night, all while discussing one of Alfred Hitchcock’s earliest works - ‘The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog’ at the request of a patron.
The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog is a 1927 British silent film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Marie Ault, Arthur Chesney, June Tripp, Malcolm Keen, and Ivor Novello. Hitchcock's third feature film, it was released on 14 February 1927 in London and on 10 June 1928 in New York City. Based on the novel The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes and the play Who Is He? co-written by Belloc Lowndes, the film is about the hunt for a "Jack the Ripper"-like serial killer in London.
