The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927)

Hollywood organist Dean Lemire will be performing his original score on the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ.

Considered as the first true Hitchcock film by many and himself, This was the “master of suspense” in his first foray into the thriller genre, that would continue throughout his career.

Ivor Novello perfectly plays the mysterious tenant who may be implicated in a series of Jack the Ripper-style murders; his performance dares the audience to suspect an attractive man of unspeakable crimes.

Hitchcock’s own visual ingenuity and mastery really shows itself throughout the film…as in the famous sequence of the lodger pacing in an upstairs room, shot through a floor of glass.

Alfred Hitchcock’s silent masterpiece. in his own words: “My first thriller… the picture that started it all.”
