    7.2/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-36m

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film House of Strangers

    The main theme of 'House of Strangers' reminded me of the argument of Edward Dmytryk's 'Broken Lance' (1954) that seems to be a slightly disguised (with cowboy hats) remake. Oedipian drama with an invisible Mother and Debra Paget. Recommended.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film House of Strangers

    Des acteurs convaincants pour une oeuvre superbe et prenante qui engendra aussi deux remakes : "La lance brisée" (1954) et "The big show" (1961)... www.cinefiches.com

  5. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film House of Strangers

    Correcta aunque no al nivel de otras grandes películas de Mankiewicz. Lo mejor del filme es sin duda Edward G. Robinson y esa secuencia que da antesala al flashback donde la cámara solitaria sube los escalones de la mansión en donde la discordia entre familiares será producto de la ambición por heredar no necesariamente una herencia, sino un patriarcado.

  6. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film House of Strangers

    Tip-top cast in a highly charged setting. Very absorbing.

  7. AKFilmFan's rating of the film House of Strangers

    With hints of King Lear and a slight influence on The Godfather the film falls flat in the middle section with its melodramatic romantics. Robinson gives the standout performance!

  8. Dave's rating of the film House of Strangers

    In the able hands of director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and boasting a bevy of big name talent, it is another prime example of how effortlessly the studio system could churn out outstanding dramas.
