    Who said Druitt didn't do it?

  • #2
    A Druitt-as-Jack movie is long, long, long overdue.

    Echoes of the real fiend -- at least for Macnaghten -- can be found in 'The Lodger' [though he rejected this] in 'Time After Time', and in 'Dressed to Kill'.

    I applaud the enthusiasts who have made a movie without the backing of a major company.

    They seem to have gone for the Crawford Letter, rather than the Tory MP, because it gives them a familial link to the police -- and perhaps it redacts Druitt back into the 1888 investigation.

    I find this understandable from a dramatic point of view; if he's long dead where is the suspense?

    Yet historically it perpetuates the Sims paradigm which both Littlechild and Macnaghten debunked, just before the Great War.

    Of course, I could be misreading the trailer but it seems to be about Emily and Anderson as the family-police link.

      What is so terribly hard about spelling the victims' names correctly?

        I just caught up with this thread; I added a link to Emily and the Bibliophile: A Possible Source for Macnaghten's Private Information by
        Stephen on the main Druitt thread !

          Seriously, I hear you. You would think that these names ain't like Slavic or Georgian or even Uzbekian surnames. Nichols,Chapman and the one other one I can spell would be easy even for say, a Texan, to spell.

            Good point, Carolyn.

            It's interesting to note that both Nichols (Nicholls), and Eddowes' (Eddows) grave markers are misspelled.

            Cheers,

              I just saw the trailer for a the first time.

              For an "amateur" production, it at least looks good.

                Review

                Jennifer Shelden reviewed the documentary in Casebook Examiner 5 (December 2010) and rather liked it, giving it three stars out of five.
