FULL SYNOPSIS

While the silent was not director Alfred Hitchcock's first film, it was the first to truly deserve the designation "A Hitchcock Picture". British matinee idol Ivor Novello plays Jonathan Drew, a quiet, secretive young man who rents a room in a London boarding house. Drew's arrival coincides with the reign of Terror orchestrated by Jack the Ripper. As the film progresses, circumstantial evidence begins to mount, pointing to Drew as the selfsame Ripper. In addition to Novello's 1932 remake, was remade in 1944 with Laird Cregar, then again in 1953 as Ivor Novello, with Jack Palance as Jonathan Drew. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
