Restauration par le British Film Institute sur une nouvelle orchestration composée par Nitin Sawhney, interprétée par l'orchestre symphonique de Londres
Master haute définition remastérisé
Alors qu'un tueur en série terrifie Londres en s'attaquant aux jeunes femmes blondes le jeudi, 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 la véritable identité du nouveau venu. Pourquoi ne sort-il que la nuit tombé ? Pourquoi cache-t-il une 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 ?

PHOTO 6: Hitchcock's second on-screen cameo? @ 1:25:35 (not accepted by all Hitchcock scholars).
If it really is Hitchcock, then this scene was directed by the Assistant Director,

"The Lodger" (1927), based on the hunt for Jack the Ripper, was Hitchcock's second completed film.
It was an international sensation, establishing the 28 year-old director as a major force in British film.
Despite the serious story, Hitchcock's tone can be disarmingly playful (a trademark of the mature Hitchcock).
Most reviews on Amazon are for Public Domain DVDs, not the Criterion Blu-Ray.
In 2017, Criterion Collection released the British Film Institute's 2k digital transfer of "The Lodger", coupled in a double bill with Hitchcock's fifth film, "Downhill".
Both silent films feature British matinee idol Ivor Novello.
The picture quality may strike you as nothing special, unless you are familiar with earlier DVD transfers.
A heroic rescue job for these 90 year-old films.
In "Downhill" (1927), 34 year-old Ivor Novello is miscast as a teenager who is expelled from his snooty boarding school after being falsely accused of dancing with a shopgirl.
[dancing being a euphemism for something else - Novello was again miscast.]
This ruins his chances of going to Oxford, and his life goes "downhill".
When he finally reaches bottom, Novello has an impressive twenty minute delirium scene.
A lot of interesting ideas: My favorite is @ 1:35:34 where his father appears in a dream sequence looking a lot like the vampire in Murnau's "Nosferatu", filmed five years earlier (photos 8 & 9).
No murders and no Hitchcock cameo.
The shopgirl works at at "Ye Olde Bun Shoppe".
-- No audio commentary, but Criterion has provided two "visual essays" totaling 50 minutes which serve just as well, and allow on-screen comparison of scenes from "The Lodger" with later Hitchcock films.
-- Twenty minute lecture-demonstration by composer Neil Brand, composer of the new film score (modern but effective).
-- The usual Hitchcock interviews with Francois Truffaut and Peter Bogdanovich.
-- Thirty minute radio dramatization of "The Lodger" from 1940 directed by Alfred Hitchcock for the radio series "Suspense".
Starring Herbert Marshall (as the Lodger, "Mr. Sleuth") and Edmund Gwen (as Daisy's father).
Completely different plot.
Shortly after the 26 minute mark, Daisy's mother says "Go on, Open the door"
A stagehand yells "Cut!" and the actors go out of character.
The plot breaks down and Alfred Hitchcock comes on to announce that the show is over.
Except it's not Hitchcock's voice (most people in 1940 would not recognize his voice anyway).
I'm not really giving away the ending.
There is no ending to give away.
See Comment One (dated July 1, 2017) for an internet link to the radio show.
The British actor/playright/songwriter (real name David Davies) starred in 22 British films between 1920 and 1934, including a 1932 sound re-make of "The Lodger" (directed by Maurice Elvey), with a significantly different ending.
Novello was a Welshman, but is burdened with a curious Italian accent in the sound remake.
The 1932 film (re-titled "The Phantom Fiend" in the US) is available on DVD: Vintage Horror Double Feature: Phantom Fiend (1932) / Ghost Walks (1934)
"The Lodger" was remade once again in 1944 with the tragically short-lived Laird Cregar: Lodger [Blu-ray]
MGM DVD (2009)
In 2009, "The Lodger" was released on a very good DVD from MGM.
The print (from the "National Film and Television Archive") is not as clean or detailed as the Criterion print.
The leaflet that came with the MGM DVD had two whopping errors:
-- The lodger is not named "Jonathan Drew".
That was his name in the original novel, but in Hitchcock's film he is unnamed, only referred to as "the lodger".
-- The MGM leaflet claims that in the 1932 sound remake, the Lodger is revealed as the murderer at the end of the film.
A terrible spoiler, but it ain't true:
Not only is he not the murderer, but the 1913 novel, Hitchcock's 1927 film, and the 1932 remake have three completely different endings.
On the plus side, the MGM DVD had a helpful audio commentary from Patrick McGilligan, plus a 23 minute featurette, plus an interview with Hitchcock's granddaughter.
Worth keeping for the extra features.
Unfortunately the MGM DVD is out-of-print and rather expensive: The Lodger
or in Alfred Hitchcock Premiere Collection (Lifeboat / Spellbound / Notorious / The Paradine Case / Sabotage / Young and Innocent / Rebecca / The Lodger)
ALFRED HITCHCOCK FILMOGRAPHY:
Alfred Hitchcock directed 56 feature films (one is lost) over a 51 year period.
To date, 32 Hitchcock films have been released on Blu-Ray.
PART ONE: BRITISH PERIOD
Alfred Hitchcock directed 26 feature-length films for British studios between 1925 and 1939.
The first ten were silent.
'The Mountain Eagle" (1927) is a lost film.
"Blackmail" (1929) is counted twice - it was Hitchcock's final silent film, and simultaneously filmed as his first talkie.
To date, the Criterion Collection has released five of the British films on Blu-Ray.
I hope more will follow, but have no inside information.
All but two of the remaining films are on DVD. The exceptions:
-- "Blackmail", the silent version (1929)
-- "Mary" (1931), the German language version of "Murder!"
These obscure titles seem to cry out for the deluxe treatment in a double bill with the readily available version of the same film, but so far no company has risen to the bait (Criterion? Kino? anybody?)

1927 The Mountain Eagle - silent film [lost film]

Don't judge me harshly; I like almost *everything* Hitchcock, and pretty much *everything* Film Noir ... but alas, I didn't enjoy this.
As a dedicated Hitchcock fan, I may give it a 2nd try (sadly, I'll have to pay a 2nd time) ... and if I change my mind, I'll change my review.
UPDATE TO PREVIOUS REVIEW: After reading other reviews for this item, I think it imperative to clarify some confusion swirling around "The Lodger." Many reviewers have docked "stars" from this item because they are obviously reviewing a different product from the one identified here. It becomes obvious when one reads reviews being posted from the early twenty-first century: the Criterion Collection's edition of "The Lodger" was not released until June 27, 2017—at this writing, just over three months ago. The reviewers of earlier editions with inferior remastering and production values did not misrepresent what they saw, which probably was miserable. But they are not reviewing the Criterion edition, which is now the new benchmark. Cinephiles, to be sure, may and will argue the merits and mars of the Criterion version, but at least they are arguing over the same thing.
Amazon ought to separate out and distinguish older, dreadful copies of a film from recent, pristine editions of the same title. It's quite misleading, because purchasers have a right to know exactly what they are buying. In this case, if you shell out your hard-earned shekels, make sure you are buying s sweet peach, not a moldy prune.
