Heritage House Classic Film Series screens a classic
The Heritage House Arts & Civic Center continues their summer film series with an often-overlooked classic from one of the most innovative directors of the 20th century: Orson Welles.
Welles directed and starred alongside Edward G. Robinson and Loretta Young in 1946’s “The Stranger,” which tells the tale of an investigator with the War Crimes Commission seeking Franz Kindler, mastermind of the Holocaust, who has effectively erased his identity.
Mr. Wilson (Robinson) releases Kindler’s former comrade and follows him to Harper, Connecticut, where he is killed before he can identify Kindler.
His only clue is Kindler’s fascination with antique clocks; but, though Kindler seems secure in his new identity, he feels his past closing in.
Admission is free and they even throw in some delicious popcorn.
