This is the first talky remake of a book and later Alfred Hitchcock movie called “The Lodger”, inspired by Jack the Ripper. It seems people prefer Hitchcock’s silent version, this remake was made while talking in movies was still in a refining phase, and the characters change a bit in odd ways because of that.
Archie Baskcomb is chiefly remembered for his creation of the part of "Slightly" in the very first stage production of J.M.Barrie's PETER PAN in 1904. He created a major character out of an underwritten part and went on to play it for seven years.
