FROM HELL AND BACK (You're A Naughty One, Saucy Jack)

MURDER BY DECREE – dir. Bob Clark. Starring Christopher Plummer, James Mason, Frank Finley, Susan Clark, Sir John Gielgud, etc.

FROM HELL – dirs. Albert and Allen Hughes. Starring Johnny Depp, Heather Graham, Ian Holm, Robbie Coltrane, etc.

Recently, I revisited two films dealing with the same subject matter: the Whitechapel murders of the late 19th century. Actually, I practically viewed these back to back. More like one week after the other. And believe me, there was no intent on my part to assess a comparison while viewing the two. In fact, the notion of writing an article on either flick did not occur to me until after I sat through Bob Clark’s MURDER BY DECREE the other night.
