The Synopsis for The Stranger (1946) 1080p

Wilson of the War Crimes Commission is seeking Franz Kindler, mastermind of the Holocaust, who has effectively erased his identity. Wilson releases Kindler's former comrade Meinike and follows him to Harper, Connecticut, where he is killed before he can identify Kindler. Now Wilson's only clue is Kindler's fascination with antique clocks; but, though Kindler seems secure in his new identity, he feels his past closing in.

The Reviews for The Stranger (1946) 1080p


Taught, suspenseful thrillerReviewed byAlberto-7Vote: 8/10

This film has been knocked by many people saying that Orson Welles was forced to work within the strict confines of the Hollywood system. I have absolutely no problem with this. Welles is a master craftsman. He made great films, period. In an interview he said that the studio cut out " a couple of reels" that take place in South America at the beginning of the story that he felt was the best part of the movie. As a viewer I feel that the film is compact and taut. Adding more to it would not help(in my opinion). On the contrary, I think adding more might make the film sluggish. As it stands the film remains dark. You feel that evil is present. You are just not sure what is going to happen next.

The performances in this film are for the most part excellent. Edward G. Robinson is amazing. This could have been a cardboard thin good-guy part. Instead he turns the character of Wilson into a smart, cunning hero. He is self-assured not obsessed. He understands what most people in the town don't: Kindler is a monster who is capable of anything. To catch such a man you have to be several steps ahead of him. Also excellent is Konstantin Shayne as Meinike. You can see the fear and madness in his eyes as he repeats "I am travelling for my health, I am travelling for my health..." before going through customs. Make no mistake, this man is "an obscenity that must be destroyed" to quote Wilson. Just look at his scene with the photographer in South America. He is used to people following his orders. Welles is also very good as Kindler/Rankin. There are moments that you actually feel sympathy for him. His obsession with fixing the town clock is very significant. Here is a man who needs things to be precise and structured. He wants total control of his environment(a good example is how he treats his wife). Welles hints at this man's mania but keeps him human. Even though you want him to be caught, you can't help wondering if he'll get away. Loretta Young is unfortunately just average in this film. She has some good moments (especially in the final scene when she confronts Rankin/Kindler)but her hysterics are just too much. The scene where Wilson is showing her the Nazi atrocities is well played. She keeps a certain composure that works well.

Overall, a very well made thriller with top notch performances and solid direction by one of cinema's masters. I give it 8 clock towers out of 10.

Very Disappointing Considering The Three LeadsReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 7/10

Since the three stars of this movie are three of my favorites - Orson Welles, Edward G. Robinson and Loretta Young - this was a major disappointment.

This is one of the few movies I didn't care for but watched THREE times. I guess I really, really wanted to like this film, although the final time I only watched it because it was part of a film noir DVD package set. At least the print was better than the lousy VHS copies that were available on this movie. That's important because, being a film noir, there a number of good night-time shots with sharp contrasts.

I might have thought better of this film had it had a more realistic ending, instead of hokey Hollywood-type finish that has a major credibility problem, which I can't go into with spoiling it. It also had too many lulls in the story. They weren't long lulls, but they added up.

Despite the story problems, it's always a pleasure to see Robinson - in his prime, too, a thin Wells also in his good years and attractive Young. Too bad their characters are on the dumb side, as is the story.

Overwrought and melodramatic ending for an uneven film...Reviewed byDoylenfVote: 6/10

THE STRANGER offers an interesting story, but it takes its time in involving the viewer in it after a slow start. ORSON WELLES is an ex-Nazi hiding in a small Connecticut town and EDWARD G. ROBINSON is the man hunting him down. Loretta Young is his attractive wife who knows nothing about her husband's past.

These elements are combined to make a fairly suspenseful story under Orson Welle's rather theatrical direction. He gives one of his robust over-the-top performances in the peak melodramatic moments, such as the final scenes where he follows his distraught wife to the clock tower, an ending foreshadowed by his fascination with clocks.

Seen in a pristine print, it's a very watchable movie. Unfortunately, there are many Public Domain prints that make the film look like a low-budget production. Avoid them if you can, and you should get some suspenseful entertainment from a good print.

Performances by Loretta Young and Edward G. Robinson are excellent.
