House of Strangers ★★★½ 1949

Conte, in a superb performance, swears vengeance on his brothers, whom he blames for his father's death. Robinson, in a smaller part than you'd expect from his billing, is nevertheless excellent as the ruthless banker father who sadly reaps a reward he didn't count on. Based on Philip Yordan's “I'll Never Go There Again.” 101m/B VHS, DVD . Edward G. Robinson, Susan Hayward, Richard Conte, Luther Adler, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Debra Paget; D: Joseph L. Mankiewicz; W: Philip Yordan; C: Milton Krasner. Cannes ‘49: Actor (Robinson).
