Strange — I tried watching HOUSE OF STRANGERS once before — it’s Joseph L Mankiewicz, after all — and bailed on it. Revisiting for this fortnight’s Forgotten By Fox, I found it excellent. The thing is, on first viewing I regarded Edward G. Robinson as the main attraction, and he’s a little disappointing here. Most of the fun to be had is with Richard Conte and Susan Hayward and Luther Adler, though I somehow failed to mention the last-named in my piece.
