Did You Know?
[on Time After Time
(1979)] One of my original conceptual things about the Ripper was that of an exceedingly handsome, elegant man. Wells, next to him, was a runt who wore glasses, and so forth. The Ripper had an image of tremendous power and potency, not just as a menace, but as an attractive, seductive human being. What was it that women went for him?
Originally urged to use Mick Jagger
as Jack the Ripper in his first film Time After Time
(1979), he persuaded Warner Bros to use David Warner
instead. After Warner Bros. rejected his idea of Derek Jacobi as H. G. Wells, he persuaded them to give the role to Malcolm McDowell
. He insisted on hiring Miklos Rozsa to compose the music.
