Alfred Hitchcock: The Lodger is an early, silent film based on the case of Jack the Ripper directed by the legend himself. This film shows all the trademarks of Hitchcock's later, more popular films. The Lodger is about Mr. and Mrs. Bunting (Arthur Chesney and Marie Ault), landlords who are concerned that one their new tenants (John Drew) may be The Avenger, a serial killer murdering blonde women under the cover of London's fog. They are particularly concerned because they have a blonde daughter, Daisy (June), living in the house too. Their suspicions are raised further because their new tenant is a reclusive man who spends much of his time in the upstairs bedroom decorated with photos of Daisy. Soon, Daisy and the tenant develop a close relationship complicating the work of detectives tracking the man. The film tracks the search for The Avenger and the burgeoning relationship between Daisy and the mysterious tenant. The Lodger is a classic Hitchcock thriller about murder, suspicion, and a possibly wronged man.
