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 plays a Jack the Ripper type and 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).
