1946
Rating:
Not Available

The Stranger is a moving noir film directed by prolific filmmaker Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, The Trial, Touch of Evil). The film was released only one year after the end of World War II in 1946 and was supposedly the first motion picture film to include live footage of German concentration camps. Franz Kindler (Orson Welles) is a Nazi war criminal living in hiding deep within a sleepy town in Connecticut. No one is aware of his past and the terrible crimes he committed. To every American, including his wife Mary (Loretta Young), Kindler is "Professor Charles Rankin". But a warrant is out for his arrest and Allied WWII official Mr. Wilson (Edward G. Robinson) tracks his whereabouts. Kindler fears Wilson might finally give him his due justice and put him in jail, however, he is even more concerned with hiding his mysterious past from his wife Mary. The movie is shot in black and white and often follows brooding, ambiguous figures from a distance - an effect which only amplifies an already suspenseful plot. If you enjoy classic film noir, be sure to watch The Stranger.
