Big man Laird Cregar is The Lodger (1944), a weird and weirdly sympathetic Victorian boarder, who may or may not be Jack the Ripper. The film’s merits rest largely on Cregar’s layered performance, along with the dramatic black-and-white photography of Lucien Ballard and the set design of a perpetually foggy London town.
