"House of Strangers" is a magnificent film-noir by Joseph L. Mankiewiczwith a great story of hatred and forgiveness. Edward G. Robinson hasone of his best performances (if not the best) and wins the Best Actoraward in the 1949 Cannes Film Festival. Richard Conte has one of hisbest roles (if not the best) in his well-succeeded career. SusanHayward is very beautiful and elegant and performs a strong femalecharacter. My vote is ten.

Italian-American Experience - New York City 1932.Reviewed byvitaleralphlouisVote: 7/10

Made during the golden era of Twentieth Century-Fox excellence, this fine film resurfaces on DVD. I'd missed it in 1949 but remember seeing the trailer at the Silver when I was 11, too young to appreciate adult drama.

Set in Mulberry Street with on location filming it looks at a family with four adult sons, a house divided against itself, taking the best and the worst of the old ways from a barber shop in Palermo to a bank in New York. There are serious conflicts with the law concerning the old man's handling of the banking business, but this is in no way a Mafia movie. Edward G. Robinson and Richard Conte give solid performances as the old man and his strongest/smartest son. Easy to see why non-Italian Susan Hayward is drawn like a magnet to the handsome, willful Italian (like me) who can ride her out on an emotional roller coaster. There simply are not any serious dramas being made (or planned) in 2005-2007 Hollywood as their focus is entirely on cartoons and silly action heroes. Look in the vaults of yesteryear for the good stuff.

Another classicReviewed bydeickosVote: 7/10

This film is one more sample of how easily old masters like Joseph Mankiewicz played with the themes and variations and thus exercised total control on their means and their art.This is a very interesting film-noir version of a classic - I am talking of course of King Lear. It is surprisingly refreshing to see this version of the classic theme and although the story is not perfect it is convincing.
