Stranger
10 November 2005 | by (Belfast, Ireland) – See all my reviews

"The Stranger" may have left no card but he certainly left an indelible impression on me when I saw him in Belfast's Broadway cinema as a child. (The equally impressive "Incident at Owl Creek" is another short film that I saw at a time when excellent short films were often offered as "support" for the main feature.) I became a great admirer of Alan Badel star of "Stranger" and am always taken back to my first viewing of the film when I hear "Swedish Rapsody".

I do not know how to obtain a copy. However,those who have expressed an interest might like to know that a re-make of the story was included in the "Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected" TV series, under the title "Stranger in Town". It stars one of Britain's finest actors, Derek Jacobi, and the good news is that it has just become available on DVD from Acorn Media Entertainment.

Maybe I should also mention that, in one of those quirks of television programme-making, the "Twilight Zone" people ran out of money, apparently, and, instead of making a final series episode, bought a prize-winning film to fill the gap. That gap-filler was nothing less than the superb "Incident at Owl Creek" (see first paragraph') which, happily, is also available on DVD as part of the "Twilight Zone". Hope that makes a few people happy!
