Description

For the Orson Welles centenary, an excerpt from his 1946 thriller, "The Stranger," in which he played an escaped Nazi war criminal hiding out as a schoolteacher in a bucolic New England town. In this scene, as students play games, he is reunited with another former Nazi, Meinike (Konstantin Shayne). Though a program picture, it did contain stylistic touches (including long takes, striking camera angles and moody sound effects) that were recognizably Wellesian. Cinematography by Russell Metty. Music by Bronislau Kaper. (RKO Pictures)
