 Jack the Ripper (1959 film)

Jack the Ripper was a 1959 film produced and directed by Monty Berman and Robert S. Baker and is loosely based on Leonard Matters' theory that the Ripper was an avenging doctor. The black-and-white film starred Lee Patterson and Eddie Byrne and co-starred Betty McDowall, John Le Mesurier, and Ewen Solon.

Jimmy McHugh and Pete Rugolo, the composers for the U.S. version of the film, teamed with Steve Allen to write a novelty song called "Jack the Ripper" as a promotional item for the film. The song was performed by Nino Tempo on a RCA 45 rpm single
