Ivor Novello in Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Lodger’

'The Lodger'

This photo was taken in 1927 and is of Welsh actor Ivor Novello (real name David Ivor Davies) in the Alfred Hitchcock film “The Lodger” loosely based on Jack the Ripper. Ivor plays the role of a suspected serial killer who goes around London killing blonde chorus girls. My cup of tea.

His character’s a bad boy so in the category he goes!

The actor was multi-talented and was a famous singer and composer too.  He was also openly gay. A shot of Ivor with his face uncovered after the cut.
