House of Strangers is a film directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz in the year 1949. The plot revolves around four debatably dysfunctional Italian-American brothers with disorganized priorities and their father, Gino Monetti (Edward G. Robinson), who has a history of upsetting his sons due to a lack of commitment as a parent. Gino practices his profession as a banker in illegal ways and eventually gets caught which lands him in jail. His youngest son Max (Richard Conte) attempts to gain leverage over his father's fate by bribing a judge. This plan backfires spectacularly and Max is sent to jail as well, causing delight and satisfaction in his three older brothers who are then free to control their father's bank without further interruption. After serving a seven year sentence, Max finds happiness in fresh freedom upon being released and his desire to punish his brothers for their selfishness dwindles. Despite Max's patience, forgiving nature, and invincible devotion to family, his three icy-veined older brothers arrange to end Max's life.moreless
