LOVE FROM A STRANGER (1937). Pretty good Agatha Christie story (and it has a future Miss Marple -Joan Hickson-in one of her first roles) that has good performances by Ann Harding , whose engagement to snooty Ronnie is broken due to her winning a lottery and meeting smooth talking Basil Rathbone and of course, things are not quite what they appear to be.
Some slow spots, but really not bad overall and quite exciting towards the end as BR goes into total Looney Tunes phase. Directed by Rowland V Lee who later directed Basil in two more expensive productions-SON OF FRANKENSTEIN and TOWER OF LONDON-a couple of years down the road. ***
