A rare original 1947 theatrical release poster for Love From A Stranger, an American romantic mystery film noir crime thriller directed by Richard Whorf and starring John Hodiak and Sylvia Sidney.
The film is also known as A Stranger Walked In, in the United Kingdom. It is based on the play of the same title by Frank Vosper, inspired by a short story by Agatha Christie.
Cecily Harrington, struggling along on a small allowance, wins a fortune in a lottery. She decides to travel rather than marrying her fiancé Nigel Lawrence. A stranger, Manuel Cortez, comes to rent her flat and she falls in love with him, and they are married. For their honeymoon, they go to an isolated English college where she, unlike the audience, doesn't realize she has married a fortune-hunting Bluebeard with a few murdered wives in his past. The question is will she be able to repent in leisure her decision to marry in haste.
This is an old poster in great condition, with strong vivid colours.
