Basil Rathbone as Gerald in "Love From a Stranger"

One of Agatha Christie’s first forays into the world of film was 1937’s Love From A Stranger, adapted by Frances Marion from a play by Frank Vosper, based on Christie’s short story Philomel Cottage. Love From A Stranger is a wry,  well-conceived psychological thriller which proves that – even 75 years on – movies haven’t really changed.
