The lodger : a story of the London Fog by Alfred Hitchcock( Visual )

35 editions published between 1926 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This variation on the Jack-the-Ripper story is the first film to display many of the characteristics which scholars today point to as representative of the Hitchcockian style. In the film, the central character, called simply "The Lodger" (Ivor Novello), is caught in the trap of other peoples' suspicions. Because this lodger, who is renting a room in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bunting (Arthur Chesny and Marie Ault), seems mysterious, he is suspected of being the notorious "Avenger," a killer who has been stalking women in London and strangling them

"Alors qu'un tueur en série terrifie Londres en s'attaquant aux jeunes femmes blondes, les Bunting accueillent, par une nuit d'épais brouillard, un nouveau locataire. Il lui faut peu de temps pour s'éprendre de leur fille, la charmante Daisy aux cheveux d'or. Et il en faut encore moins pour éveiller les soupçons de Joe, un détective vivant avec eux, sur sa véritable identité. Pourquoi ne sort-il que la nuit tombée ? Pourquoi cache-t-il la photographie d'une femme blonde, un revolver et une carte des déplacements du tueur ? Ce nouveau locataire a décidément d'étranges habitudes, mais est-ce suffisant pour l'accuser de meurtre ?...Alfred Hitchcock revisite le mythe de Jack l'éventreur et signe son premier chef-d'oeuvre."
