The 3rd screening in the Hippodrome's 2018 Taste of Silents Season
This haunting silent thriller tells the tale of a mysterious young man (matinee idol Ivor Novello) who takes up residence at a London boardinghouse just as a killer known as the Avenger descends upon the city, preying on blonde women.
The film is animated by the palpable energy of a young stylist at play, decisively establishing the director's formal and thematic obsessions. With musical accompaniment by Stephen Horne.
Taste of Silents – a short season introducing the rich and immersive world of silent film with live music – for anyone who loves movies and music.
Other Taste of Silents coming soon: The General 29 September.
