    ....which seems to be taken from this novel (not my find, someone on FB posted it).

    Note that it mentions Joseph Levine as the producer, which means it's probably this one as he distributed it in the US:

    Some more details.

    JACK THE RIPPER (1959) D: Robert S. Baker & Monty Berman

    BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL!

    LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 BLU-RAY WITH BONUS DVD & EXCLUSIVE SLIP CASE

    Three versions of the movie (British Version from 1080 telecine, US Version 2k scan of archival print, Bonus DVD of the European Version assembled from British Version and only known tape source of salacious alternate/extended scenes) PLUS a host of exclusive bonus features including full audio commentary with the late British film legends: co director Robert S. Baker and Hammer screenwriter Jimmy Sangster with Assistant Director Peter Manley; Interview with Denis Meikle, author of "Jack the Ripper, The Murders & The Movies"; all new documentary short 'Gentleman Jack - The Whitechapel Murders Revisited' and more! The limited edition also comes with an Exclusive slip case with the lurid paperback movie tie-in artwork. The regular inner wrap is reversible with two different vintage poster designs.

    In 1959, legendary showman Joseph E. Levine bought this grisly UK thriller to unleash on American moviegoers. But when audiences were horrified by the film’s startling violence, it became one of Levine’s most notorious failures. Today – in its original UK theatrical cut, the American version with a brassy new score, and the ooh-la- la European edition – it remains among the most under appreciated and provocative shockers of its time. Eddie Byrne (THE MUMMY), Lee Patterson (TV’s SURFSIDE 6) and Betty McDowall (FIRST MEN IN THE MOON) star in this lurid classic produced/directed by Robert S. Baker & Monty Berman (THE HELLFIRE CLUB, BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE) and written by Hammer Films’ legendary Jimmy Sangster (THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, HORROR OF DRACULA) that FilmFracture.com calls “the perfect combination of murder mystery and horror film with just the right amount of lovely ladies!”

    AVAILABLE BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND (regular cover / single disc edition released in 2018, any leftovers of Limited Edition will not be available until regular edition streets).
