KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL is a hard-hitting film noir starring John Payne as Joe Rolfe, an ex-con who's trying to go straight with a job as a deliveryman for a florist company. Unfortunately, a gang of thugs (the sinister trio of Jack Elam, Neville Brand, and Lee Van Cleef) led by a criminal mastermind (Preston Foster) have arranged a bank robbery using a van that looks just like the one driven by Rolfe--and the deliveryman takes the fall for the heist. This leads to Rolfe's search for the real thieves, a trail that leads to Mexico and an unexpected love affair with the gang leader's daughter (Coleen Gray). Orson Welles directed and starred in THE STRANGER, a tense black-and-white thriller that Welles made for maverick producer Sam Spiegel. Welles portrays Charles Rankin, a respected academic at a prominent Connecticut college. He seems to have the perfect life: a beautiful new wife, Mary (Loretta Young); and a charming home in a small town that holds him in high esteem. Enter Mr. Wilson (Edward G. Robinson), a detective on the hunt for Nazi war criminal Franz Kindler. The appearance of Mr. Wilson threatens to reveal that underneath this idyllic veneer is a secret that could tear everything apart.
