The making of The Lodger, the 1944 John Brahm film, loosely based on the jack the ripper murders, or rather in the book written by a woman whose name escapes me right now (you can see it in the doc). Best thing about this is Laird Cregar performance as The Lodger, massive man physically and in terms of talent. He died before his time, at only 31. What could've been...!

Veronica Lake (November 14, 1922 July 7, 1973) was an American film actress and pin-up model who enjoyed both popular and critical acclaim, most notably for her femme fatale roles in film noir with Alan Ladd during the 1940s, as well as her peek-a-boo hairstyle. Her success did not last. Following a string of broken marriages and long struggles with mental illness and alcoholism, she died almost destitute. This Gun for Hire (1942) is a crime drama film noir, directed by Frank Tuttle and based on the novel A Gun for Sale by Graham Greene. The drama features Veronica Lake, Robert Preston, Laird Cregar, Alan Ladd, among others.
There is attempt of making music video. I used some clips from old classic films : Arsenic and old lace (1944) I wake up screaming (1941) M (1931) Mad love (1935) Psycho (1960) Vicki (1953) Let me know what you thinking about.
Little tradition of film noir : there was a cop in love with dead beautiful woman. I used the clips from: I Wake Up Screaming (1941) Laura (1944) Vicki (1953) Only Laura was not really dead.
THE LODGER (1944) & HANGOVER SQUARE (1945) The brilliant Laird Cregar stars in these two brooding murder/melodramas set in turn of the century London. The fog, the dark, the shadows, a scream in the night and Jack The Ripper has struck again. Cregars larger than life size and bulging eyeballs loom into the frame to scare the wits out of you, while at the same time his quiet demeanor and sensitivity with underlying gay overtones bring about an unexpected pathos. Director John Brahm proves its not what you see, but what you dont that haunts your dreams. George Harvey Bone: All my life I've had black little moods.

This scene is an important scene from the film. Bernard Herrmann did the score for this film. And I thought Herrmann's score for this scene was brilliant. So I decided to post this video. Great Performance from Laird Cregar.
I have limited material, sorry. Hangover Square (1946) is effective Gaslight Gothic, shot in opulent trimmings of 1940Â´s Hollywood, and telling sympathetically mad composer (Laird Cregar), femme fatale (Linda Darnell) and good girl (Faye Marlowe). Although CregarÂ´s character is serial killer (!), he is not inspired by any filthy perversions but uncontrollable blackouts. Innocent by the reason of insanity, quite literally.

Laird Cregar as Mr. Slade in The Lodger (1944). This scene could be interpreted in several ways - is Mr. Slade just randomly peculiar? Crazy? In love with his dead brother?
