The Stranger Reviews

Adroitly directed by Orson Welles, who also plays the star, it is a grade A gooseflesh-raiser.

Orson Welles's 1946 film reproduces his personal themes of self-scrutiny and self-destruction only in outline, though it is an inventive, highly enjoyable thriller.

The Stranger is socko melodrama, spinning an intriguing web of thrills and chills.

The whole film, produced by S. P. Eagle, comes off a bloodless, manufactured show.

Welles' third film, often described as his worst, but still a hugely enjoyable thriller.
