While undercut by his intent to show studio execs his ability to keep budgets under control above all else, Orson Welles' 1946 thriller “The Stranger” remains quite a taut and entertaining genre entry. Starring Welles himself alongside Edward G. Robinson and Loretta Young, at no point does the film reach the heights of other works like “Touch of Evil” (which DP Russell Metty also shot), instead going for a more staid brand of Wellesian tomfoolery, but now it's been revealed that another genre director will attempt his own route with an update of the material.
