A landlady suspects her new lodger is the madman killing women in London.
Finnish certificate register number 81058 delivered on 24-10-1972.
Tall he was - and his face all wrapped up.
When the lodger is playing a game of chess with Daisy (about 26 minutes into the movie), the chessboard is set up incorrectly. A game of chess is always played with a black square on the far-left and a white square on the far-right of the board as they face it; on this occasion the board is the wrong way around and should be rotated 90 degrees in either direction for it to be correct.
The original version of The Lodger directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1926 was restored in 1999 in honor of the directors 100th anniversary. The film was restored by the British National Film & TV Archives and a new score by Ashley Irwin was commissioned by ZDF/ARTE (Germany) and premiered on August 13, 1999 (what would have been Hitchcock's 100th birthday).
