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.

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

This post is part of my rehash and continuation of the For the Love of Film Noir Blogathon originally held back in February of 2011. Thus and so, we will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again for the entire month of March. And along with all the old material migrating over from the old site, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940′s through the late ’50s. And as an added bonus, I’ll be posting some vintage adverts to stuff I’ve always associated with the genre — cigarettes, booze and fashionable ladies.
