Softcover. SIGNED. Jack the Ripper - the phantom figure whose dark silhouette retains its power to chill over 100 years after his atrocious crimes electrified the world. A handful of murders in London's East End during the autumn of 1888 have inspired a virtual industry dedicated to revealing the killer's identity. Solutions to the mystery have been proposed in a host of novels, plays, short stories and increasingly blood-spattered movies. In this unique book, the author examines the historical background of the Ripper murders, and their evolution into a filmmaking genre and urban myth. From silent classics like 'The Lodger' and 'Pandora's Box' to the 21st century shocker 'From Hell', every twist and turn of the Ripper's pop culture progress is here. Gruesome and thoroughly gripping, a book which will fascinate film fans and devotees of true crime alike. Contents include : The Murders; The Movies; Inquest. Profusely illus., Appendix, Bibliog. and Index. 240pp. 8vo. softcover. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. F.
