Description by OLDIES.com:
The Gaunt Stranger (aka The Phantom Strikes) was the third British screen adaptation of novelist Edgar Wallace's hit mystery "The Ringer" and the second cinematic attempt at the story by producer Michael Balcon and director Walter Forde (collaborators on the previous 1931 version). Boasting atmospheric camerawork by future director Ronald Neame (The Poseidon Adventure) and an intense script by Sidney Gilliat (the screenwriter for Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes and Jamaica Inn), The Gaunt Stranger is a classic of British suspense cinema.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 122 ratings.
If you enjoy a film with a surpise twist at the end, this British film is perfect for you. Not only does it provide a surprise; it provies two. Of all the Edgar Wallace stories, this is the best I've seen.
