Kansas City Confidential / The Stranger (2 Pack)
An ex-Nazi war criminal assumes a new identity and a new life in suburban America following World War II. But an agent from the U.N.'s War Crimes Commission is on his tail, threatening to expose the lurid past and true identity he keeps secret.
Orson Welles directs and stars as Charles Rankin, a professor residing in a quiet Connecticut town with his new American wife, Mary (Loretta Young). Rankin has held strong to his fascist ideals but left nary a shred of evidence, not even a photograph, to identify him as the notorious Franz Kindler. Mr. Wilson (Edward G. Robinson), the man determined to find him, has a plan. But when that "plan" disappears in the woods, Wilson is left with little hope of convincing the townspeople, or Kindler's naive new wife, who this stranger in their midst really is.
Kansas City Confidential
An absolute gem from film noir's golden era. Joe Rolfe (John Payne) is an ex-con on the road to rehabilitation when he's framed for a million dollar robbery staged by Tim Foster (Preston S. Foster), a vengeful former cop. By the time he's finally released for lack of evidence, it's already too late - his face has been plastered on the front page of the newspaper, he's been fired from his job, and he's still healing his wounds from the beating he took down at the police station. Embittered and determine, he sets out to find the real criminals to render justice himself. A trail of clues leads him south to Mexico, and straight into the path of an inconvenient beauty (Coleen Gray) with ties to the ringleader, and some of the ugliest bad guys you'd never want to meet (Lee Van Cleef, Neville Brand, Jack Elam).
