Film Titles, Film titles, The Lodger
An early enthusiast of the cinema, Kauffer also found professional opportunities in the field. He cofounded and designed the logo for the Film Society in London in 1925. The organization was responsible for introducing much of the British public to modern experimental film. After the distributor held up the release of Alfred Hitchcock’s silent thriller The Lodger, Kauffer was hired to design the main titles and the intertitles between scenes, setting a menacing tone to the story of a serial killer in London.
