Strangers in the Night

One of the many B films turned out in the 40s by Anthony Mann, before he established himself with his James Stewart westerns. Mann's work in this period is wildly uneven, ranging from the ambitious expressionism of Two O'Clock Courage to the utter inanity of Sing Your Way Home, but all of it offers the edifying spectacle of an artist moving toward a personal style. This 1944 feature is a melodrama about pen-pal lovers; the stars are William Terry and Virginia Grey.
