  • Cregar Is Brilliant

    This is a great film for folks (like me), who enjoy suspense but are too chicken to watch horror movies. There is suspense and mystery...without being scary. As the other reviewers have noted, Laird Cregar is simply brilliant here. Truly, he played his part to absolute perfection. He was gentle and quiet, yet creepy and menacing all at once. No one could have played this part better than Mr. Cregar did. He was Academy Award-worthy here, in my opinion.

    Underrated classic. Oberon and Sanders are good in this. Laird Cregar however, is GREAT. The stark B&W, Cregar's stellar performance make this a 9/10

    The greatest Jack The Ripper film of all time. Flawless performance by the great Laird Cregar.

  • Great atmospheric film!!

    This is one of my four favorite films of all times!! The film hinges on the great performance of the late Laird Cregar and succeeds because of him. Merle Oberon, looking lovely as ever, is also very good as Kitty, the girl who is Mr. Slade's downfall. George Sanders, Sara Allgood and Sir Cedric Hardwicke are also very good in their roles.Great sets, costumes, cinematography and music compliment the film so much.Wish 20th Century Fox would put this out on DVD, and yes, I know, it is now known as Fox, but to me, it will always be 20th Century Fox.

  • Strange but fun.

    Recently bought a dvd of The Lodger on Ebay and loved it. A bit slow at times but interesting to watch Merle Oberon and George Sanders interact with the creepy yet over the top Laird Cregar. Sara Allgood is always a delight to watch though.
