Love with the Proper Stranger 09/10/17
What are two individualistic, highly motivated movie stars supposed to do when faced with an unimaginative studio system eager to misuse their talents? Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen collaborate with a great writer, director and producer for an urban romance with an eye on the sexual double standard. It’s a hybrid production: a gritty drama that’s also a calculated career move. Street reality guides Robert Mulligan’s direction, but he keeps one foot in pure romantic escapism. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
