Great suspense and a roaring climax as Wells is found out and cornered on the top of the huge town clock.
Loretta Young is almost driven crazy as she finds out more and more that her new husband is a Nazi.
This movie is a must for those who collect classics
This movie is a must for those who are classic collectors.
However, one of the two reasons you might wish to buy this pitiful Kino Blu-ray release is the commentary track by film historian Bret Wood. It's excellent! The other reason is to see the horrible footage of the Nazi death camps put together by Billy Wilder in 1946, which is one of the disc's extras. Watching "Death Mills" is a reminder of why we should never forget the atrocities of the Nazi regime. A few shots from this documentary are used in "The Stranger".
I'm still patiently waiting for a Criterion release of this film, whenever that might be. Unlike Kino, Criterion is the one company you can always rely on for stunning prints and informative extras of important movies.
The transfer is far from perfect, lots of shots with scratches, dust, slightly over exposed and also missing frames, (sometimes several in one shot, I thought it was my player but went back frame-by-frame only to find it was the print) but still with all these flaws it is light years better than any of the previous public domain copies I’ve had in the past. The audio commentary is very insightful for film buffs and especially Welles fans.
