THE LODGER
THE LODGER: A STORY OF THE LONDON FOG
1926, British Film Institute, 90 min, UK, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Director Alfred Hitchcock’s first thriller was a box office success that put him on the path to become “the master of suspense.” Ivor Novello stars in the title role as a mysterious man who rents a room in London; as local women fall prey to a Jack the Ripper-type killer, the lodger comes under increasing suspicion. In the first of his trademark cameos, Hitchcock appears in the newsroom scene a few minutes into the film.


STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
1951, Warner Bros., 101 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

A chance encounter between tennis champion Guy (Farley Granger) and psychopath Bruno (Robert Walker) on a train triggers an unstoppable race toward double murder. Hitchcock’s classic thriller is a finely-tuned engine of suspense, taking barely a breath as it steams through a spine-tingling story of fate, coincidence, guilt and psychopathology - favorite themes of noir writer Patricia Highsmith, whose novel was adapted by the great Raymond Chandler. With Ruth Roman.


Screening format: DCP (THE LODGER) and 35mm (STRANGERS ON A TRAIN) | THE LODGER: A Park Circus Films Release. Restoration by the BFI National Archive in association with ITV Studios Global Entertainment, Network Releasing, and Park Circus Films. Principal restoration funding provided by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation, and by Simon W. Hessel. Additional funding provided by British Board of Film Classification, Deluxe 124, Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, and Ian and Beth Mill.
