One of Hitchcock’s first ever films is based on the story of Jack The Ripper and stars silent film star Ivor Novello. As the suspicion that a neighbour may not be all he seems, the cat- and-mouse tension reaches almost unbearable proportion. With its trick shots, menace and the quivering stare of Ivor Novello, this silent classic is helped shape the modern-daythriller genre.
