Jack the Ripper

Jack the Ripper

Movie: Jack the Ripper
Director: Robert S. Baker / Monty Berman
Produced by: Mid Century Film Productions
Released By: Paramount, Regal Films
MPAA Rating:

Suspenseful, interesting, and macabre, this period piece by Robert S. Baker overcomes a weakness in characterization by sheer dint of storyline and action. Jack the Ripper still remains the unidentified killer of at least three, probably five, and possibly even eight prostitutes living or working in London’s East End in 1888. The murders occurred in August, September, and November of that year and were never solved. Because various internal organs of the dead victims were removed rapidly and with an accurate surgical technique, investigators have postulated that the demented serial killer was a surgeon. In this cinematic version, the murders are shown as they happened while Inspector O’Neill, along with an American detective Sam Lowry try to track down suspects and prevent the next killing. The theory put forward here is that Jack the Ripper was looking for one particular woman. As the tension mounts, his suggested identity — and what happened to him — is revealed.
