In Greek tragedy, they fall from great heights. In noir, they fall from the curb.
— Dennis Lehane
From PG via Karen L. Myers.
Film as noir, a sleeper:
â€œThe Strangerâ€, 1946- Welles, Loretta Young, Robinson.
A shade of â€œDouble Indemnityâ€ and hints of the upcoming â€œThe Third Manâ€ arise in Wellesâ€™ first noir.
For the addicted, an uncredited Brother Theodore appears briefly.
When (whenever) Welles acts heâ€™s not. Itâ€™s unsettling who he is.
