Kirk Douglas and Kim Novak in "Strangers When We Meet"

Back to the Sixties! continues at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Sam Hamm introducing 1960's "Strangers When He Meet"; he describes it as "the best story of adultery ever filmed by Hollywood."

This ironic, Douglas Sirkian romantic time capsule about an extra marital affair was originally offered to Glenn Ford, who refused to work with star Kim Novak. Coproducer Kirk Douglas took the role only to turn on her when she gave him acting lessons in front of the crew. Nevertheless, the critical and boxoffice flop has aged quite well, especially if you live in Bel Air, Beverly Hills or Malibu. A fascinating rumination on this film by Peter Avellino can be found here.
