Movie Quote(s):
  • Joe Betts: When I've put a rope round the Avenger's neck, I'll put a ring around Daisy's finger.
  • [first lines] Female eyewitness: Tall he was - and his face all wrapped up.
  • [last lines] The Landlady: Your toothbrush - you left it behind.
  • Joe Betts: Does this lodger of yours mean any harm to Daisy? The Landlady: Don't be silly, Joe. He's not that sort. Joe Betts: Even if he's a bit queer, he's a gentleman.
  • Jonathan Drew: [playing chess] Be careful, I'll get you yet.
Movie Trivia:
  • Alfred Hitchcock wanted an ambiguous ending to the film, but the studio wouldn't allow it to be implied that the lodger might actually be the murderer.
  • The movie is based on the book of the same name. It was the first book to offer a solution to the Jack The Ripper killings. The book is supposedly based on an anecdote told to the painter Walter Sickert by the landlady when renting a room; she said that the previous tenant had been Jack the Ripper.
  • Director Cameo: [Alfred Hitchcock] a desk in the newsroom early in the film. Some people claim he also appears later in the crowd lynch scene.
  • Hitchcock told François Truffaut that, though he had made two films prior to this, he considered this his first true film.
  • Debut of Reginald Gardiner.
