Events: Montague Jack screening at Allendale House - 24th November 2011

Wimborne Minster Cine and Video Club screens it award-winning film, 'Montague Jack' to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of East Dorset Heritage Trust taking up residence in Allendale House.

Starring Michael Medwin as Inspector Abberline, this new movie explores the life of one of Wimborne’s most notorious characters – Montague John Druitt.

Produced by Wimborne Minster Cine and Video Club the story has been written and directed by Ray Joyce with Peter Hale as director of photography, together with a cast of talented actors from local theatre including Wimborne Drama and Canford School. Shot on location in Wimborne and Poole, it traces the life of Montague Druitt from his early days as a teenager in Wimborne through to his untimely suicide at the age of 31 in 1888. The story is told through the eyes of the retired Inspector Frederick Abberline (Michael Medwin) who headed the hunt for Jack the Ripper.

This movie throws a fascinating light on one of the great unsolved mysteries of the 19th Century.
