The Stranger

A buddy of mine just loves old films... and while I don’t hare his passion, I do find that those old stories make up for their lack of special effects (and color) with stories that grab you by the throat and stare you down to the ground.

The Stranger is a film that I recently added to my Tivo play list... but not sure why. Still... very glad that I did.

Orson Welles directed and starred in The Stranger, a tense black-and-white thriller featuring Edward G. Robinson.

If you have some knowledge of the horrors of World War II, then you can appreciate the story line.

Grab a copy of The Stranger today!

If you prefer to rent over purchasing... then check out this two-for-one offer...

You can rent Citizen Welles: The Stranger / The Trial from Netflix and get a set that includes “The Stranger” plus another Welles film, “The Trial.”

These classic features, both directed by Welles, are bundled with a 30-minute documentary, hosted by noted Welles historian Richard France. This documentary provides a rare behind-the-scenes look at the restoration process of these two classic features, along with Welles’ first film, 1934’s Hearts of Age.

The more... the merrier!
