Orson Welles at 100: THE STRANGER

The Stranger 2

Welles’ post-war thriller tackles Nazism head-on as UN War Crimes Inspector Wilson (Edward G. Robinson) searches for Welles’ fugitive Franz Kindler, an architect of the Holocaust now posing as a schoolteacher in small-town America. Kindler, now Charles Rankin, is married to the daughter of a Supreme Court justice and lives an unassuming life. But when Wilson releases Kindler’s former associate (Konstantin Shayne), the Nazi fugitive falls squarely in Wilson’s crosshairs. His secret double life is threatened with exposure, and he’ll do anything to keep it under wraps.

THE STRANGER screens Tuesday, December 22 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is showing as part of our Orson Welles at 100 series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
