This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
1946’s “The Stranger”
Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 PM this
Friday and Saturday night (November 16 & 17) for our “LRPA After
Dark” presentation of 1946’s suspenseful thriller “The
Stranger,” starring Orson Welles (who also directed), Loretta
Young and Edward G. Robinson.
Wilson (Robinson), an investigator with the Allied War Crimes
Commission, is looking for Franz Kindler (Welles), a notorious
Nazi war criminal — the mastermind behind their death
camps — who has made his way from Germany to a sleepy
Connecticut town. There, he has carefully constructed a new
identity. He is now living incognito as Charles Rankin, a
college professor and antique clock enthusiast who will soon
marry lovely Mary Rankin (Young), the daughter of a respected
judge. His cover is intact until Wilson, tailing another escaped
Nazi prisoner, begins to suspect that there may be more to
Professor Rankin than meets the eye.
Released in 1946, “The Stranger” holds the distinction of being
the first American feature film to include documentary footage
of Nazi concentration camps. “The Stranger” is by far the
least well known, and perhaps most conventional, of Orson
Welles’ movies. In fact, he only took on the project to prove to
studio executives that he could direct a film that came in on
time, within budget and without any problems, unlike his earlier
masterpieces “Citizen Kane” and “The Magnificent Ambersons.”
Welles readily accomplished that task, although the artistic and
personal compromises he was forced to make on “The Stranger”
resulted in it being his least favorite film.
Despite all of Welles’ misgivings, “The Stranger” is a tense and
suspenseful thriller with exceptional performances from its
entire cast. Variety reviewed it as “ … socko melodrama,
spinning an intriguing web of thrills and chills.” If you
love American film noir, this is the one for you. So grab your
popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this thriller from the

Letter To The Editor
Thank You’s Are In Order
First, I would like to thank the 2,000+ voters who braved the
elements to vote last Tuesday. I’d especially like to thank the
964 voters who voted for me and 1,005 voters who voted for Dr.
David Coursin, giving him a 17-vote edge over his opponent, Joe
McCaffrey. Congratulations, David.
Second, I like to thank Joe McCaffrey for running and beating
incumbent Brian J. Stone in the primary. This removed the
incumbent Republican, and opened the way for voters to consider
two “new” candidates.
Third, I would like to thank my opponent Terry Roy for NOT
continuing to run a campaign of personal attacks. I say “not
continuing” because early on, I was told of some posts that
appeared labeling me as a tax-and-spend, anti-gun socialist, or
something like that. But then I heard that the posts had been
taken down. Thanks, Terry. And good luck representing us as a
member of the minority party.
Finally, I would like to thank Cheryl Dean for her unremitting
and unfounded attacks on David Coursin. And for never getting
around to saying anything positive about his opponent.
While some may have bought what she was selling “hook, line and
sinker,” I think that many more were turned off by this
negativity. And I think that at least 17 people expressed their
disgust by voting for David.
that way, her “gun control extremist” campaign backfired. Pardon
