Hitchcock's The Lodger

Part of Classical Season

Organist David Briggs plays a live, improvised soundtrack to Alfred Hitchcock’s film The Lodger. Hitchcock found his métier as a director in this silent film, released in 1927.

Subtitled ‘A Story of the London Fog’, it explores a landlady’s concerns about her mysterious tenant during the hunt for a Jack the Ripper-style serial killer.

Starring matinee idol Ivor Novello, the film conjures up a city’s paranoia and takes a long look into the darker corners of the human heart.

Described by classicalmusic.com as ‘one of the world’s finest organists’, David Briggs is a virtuosic improviser for the instrument.
