Originating from Poverty Row, from the cast to execution, When Strangers Marry is about as close to an A picture as the King Brothers or Monogram ever got. A bit of a sleeper hit at the box office, this idiosyncratic film noir drew high praise from Orson Welles, leading to Castle’s eventual collaboration with him on The Lady from Shanghai.
This post is part of Goregirl’s Dungeon and The Last Drive-In’s The William Castle Blogathan, a week long tribute to the King of Schlock. Follow the linkage, Boils & Ghouls. It’s gonna be a great week. And stick around, as we’ll be showcasing Castle’s film career from its fairly normal beginnings through it psychotronic glory days. Stay tuned!
