Editor's Note
Family, power, money, and murder swirl in a dark, explosive cocktail of revenge in the riveting HOUSE OF STRANGERS. After a ruthless banker's favorite son goes to jail in connection with the father's ends-justifies-the-means creation of a successful empire, the other three sons overthrow their father, driving him to his death. Still in jail, the favorite swears vengeance on his brothers, and complex motivations of duty, justice, and jealousy propel the four men toward a final confrontation. Though primarily known for directing dramas, Joseph L. Mankiewicz brought his skill with actors and understanding of emotional purpose to several suspense films, such as FIVE FINGERS and SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER, adding rich depth to the genre. The powerful plot of HOUSE OF STRANGERS has been used in various disguises in other films, including the Western BROKEN LANCE.
