Mankiewicz* Gino Monetti (Edward G Robinson) is a self made man, an Italian immigrant who has dragged himself up from the slums of New York to be president of his own bank. The struggle has made him hard and bitter alienating him from three of his sons. Monetti is still close to his fourth son Max (Richard Conte), a sharp lawyer with an even sharper society girlfriend (Susan Hayward).

An explosive drama with a distinctly Film Noir appeal, House of Strangers has been digitally restored and remastered for its first ever DVD UK release. LIMITED EDITION.
