To celebrate the release of Alfred Hitchcock's classic silent film The Lodger, which comes to cinemas on August 10 followed by a Blu-ray and DVD in September, The Fan Carpet are giving you the chance to win a copy of the soundtrack from legendary composer Nitin Sawhney courtesy of Network Releasing!
Alfred Hitchcock’s first thriller, “The Lodger: The Story of the London Fog” was made in 1926 and written by Eliot Stannard. It stars matinee heartthrob Ivor Novello as a mysterious lodger suspected of being the serial killer known as the Avenger, who has a taste for young blondes. He rents a room at the Brownings’, whose daughter happens to be dating the detective investigating the murders. Made for the then newly created Gainsborough Studios THE LODGER was heavily influenced by the German expressionist movement and films such as “The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari” and “Nosferatu”. Such inspiration can be seen in Hitchcock’s stylized angular shots and heavy use of light and show, which are designed to reflect the mental states of the characters. THE LODGER has been digitally restored from the existing negatives.
The soundtrack is available to buy for £14.99 on CD from July 23.
