Ivor Novello arrives as a lodger in a house when a man is killing blonde girls. The daughter is blonde and is going out with a detective investigating the case. They start to suspect that Ivor Novello is the killer. This is one of Alfred Hitchcock's early British films and whilst not one of his best there are several scenes and camera shots that show Alfred's Hitchcock's creativity, which came to full fruition in his later films. Ivor Novello later repeated his role in the 1932 talkie version Phantom Fiend.
