This film is atmospheric, faithful to author Marie Belloc Lowndes storyline, and an entertaining diversion for Palance fans who enjoy his particular brand of moody self-absorption and intensity. Here he plays a reclusive pathologist named Slade who is looking for lodgings where his privacy will be respected and he can come and go unobserved since he works irregular hours at a nearby university hospital. He finds exactly what he is looking for at the Harleys but his peculiar behavior is evident from the moment he moves into their attic apartment, noting the framed portraits of actresses on the wall: "These pictures...their eyes follow you wherever you walk. They watch. They get on my nerves. I don't like being watched."

Slade soon learns that he is not the only boarder in the home when he meets the Harleys' niece, Lily Bonner (Constance Smith), a visiting actress from France who is premiering her new stage revue at a local theatre. An attraction develops between the two and Slade begins to court Lily but his peculiar behavior becomes a cause of increasing concern for Mrs. Harley (Frances Bavier) who fears he might be Jack the Ripper. For instance, a witness to a recent murder saw the suspect fleeing the crime scene holding a black medical bag...just like the one Slade carries around. The clues begin to pile up, all of them pointing to Slade as the likely culprit, but is he really the man Scotland Yard is after?
