  7. Log Lady's rating of the film Stranger on the Third Floor

    Rough around the edges, but some of the scenes are visually gorgeous, Lorre's performance is great as always, and overall this is an interesting beginning for film noir. A lot better than I expected, and from here things only got better.

  8. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Stranger on the Third Floor

    Heavily expressionistic noir, arguably the first film noir. Peter Lorre is extra-Lorre in this one.

  9. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Stranger on the Third Floor

    While Mr. Lorre is quite menacing, he doesn't have a large role in the film. There were some unintentionally humorous sequences, as some of the characters were frozen in fear. I think if I'd seen it back then in a theater it would have been quite effective.

  10. mjgildea's rating of the film Stranger on the Third Floor

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Stranger on the Third Floor started off a little slow, but the nightmare sequences and incredibly moody lighting helped get it on point. A great blueprint for future film noir. A quick and interesting watch.

  11. Renee Hirshfield's rating of the film Stranger on the Third Floor

    I would like to have been a filmgoer experiencing this movie at the time of its release, as opposed to one having this first-time viewing reaction: Why does Tina Fey look so much like lead actress Margaret Tallichet? By the way, Tallichet's career was relatively short-lived, apart from her questionable talent, because she married William Wyler and raised five children.
