Little Caesar Owning a Bank
Try and imagine Little Caesar getting out of the rackets and taking his hard stolen loot and setting up a bank. Then Mr. Bandello marries and has four sons.

You’ve got Gino Monetti who now that he’s no longer terrorizing citizens confines his terrors to his own family. He’s got four grown sons and he treats them like the hired help. All except Richard Conte who instead of working for him directly at the bank uses the bank’s space for his law office.

I think that’s the key to this film. The other three sons Luther Adler, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., and Paul Valentine all do work for him and he can treat them like dirt. Conte on the other hand, does not work for him, he’s made his own career. By Robinson’s logic, he’s earned a certain amount of respect.

So he pits them against each other. Unfortunately Robinson’s banking practices which are not exactly legal catch up with him. He’s forced to turn the bank over to the three sons in an effort to save the bank.

Conte also tries to bribe a juror to save dear old Dad and gets disbarred and a stretch of seven years in prison for his troubles. Conte’s out now and looking to even things up with his siblings.

Robinson who’s played all kinds of immigrants of many nationalities has covered the Italian ground before. But he’s real good as the scheming, sadistic patriarch who in fact gets a deserved comeuppance from his sons. All four sons are fine in their roles with Richard Conte and Luther Adler deserving particular attention.

Susan Hayward is the girl who waits for Conte. She must be in love with him. A disbarred attorney isn’t exactly a dream prospect. She was just entering into the height of her career and this role was a career boost.

House of Strangers is far superior to the western setting remake that 20th Century Fox did five years later entitled Broken Lance

Review By: bkoganbing
Not a noir
I just bought this and was looking forward to watching as I like all the main actors and am a film noir fan. This title is being marketed as a film noir – it’s a good movie – but it definitely isn’t a noir. I certainly don’t stick to the narrow definition of a noir either.

I won’t bother to write a whole synopsis since that has been covered by earlier posts. Edward G Robinson never disappoints (even though he does kind of sound like Chico Marx in this) and Richard Conte is great. I hadn’t seen Luther Adler in anything before but he was perfect in the role of the scorned older brother.

Like I said it is a good movie…just don’t expect a noir.
