Not as a Stranger (Morton Thompson's Not as a Stranger) Reviews
An almost good movie, "Not As a Stranger" features a great cast, with several notable actors of its era. It also shows a story that wasn't very common back in 1955. But, it also turns much too soap opera-ish for its one good.
The movie was the directorial debut for Stanley Kramer. He would later go on to make much better films like "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", "On the Beach" and "Ship of Fools". This one follows the ups and downs of four medical students as they struggle through their classes and juggling relationships.
The idea was great, but the pay off never happens. The impressive cast features: Olivia de Havilland, Frank Sinatra, Robert Mitchum, Broderick Crawford, and Gloria Graham.
