Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 2/5 -- Jack the Ripper, this time with a dull blade played by Jack Palance before he turned into a raging ham.
Mr. Palance is defeated by a flatly lit commonplace production in which Constance Smith's leading lady and the households of Rhys Williams and Frances Bavier are strays from modern Hollywood. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:
Man in the Attic is the third adaptation of the psychological thriller, The Lodger written by novelist Marie Belloc Lowndes in 1912. A young Jack Palance gives an outstanding rendition as the sinister-looking, secretive soft-spoken pathologist named Slade. His character is a Jack the Ripper type who rents out a gloomy attic in the heart of London where he conducts odd experiments. All of the sudden, several women are turning up dead, all of them showgirls. The landlady suspects her lodger and is afraid for her dancer daughter, Lilly (Constance Smith).
In this, the third adaptation of Marie Belloc Lowndes's 1912 novel, THE LODGER (most famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1927), Jack Palance stars as Slade, a mysterious pathologist who rents out an attic in London. As women begin turning up dead, Slade's landlady begins to fear that he may be responsible, and she begins to keep a more watchful eye over her showgirl daughter (Constance Smith).
