: The Saturday Thriller: House of Strangers

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement
This week... starring Edward G. Robinson, Richard Conte, Susan Hayward

A power struggle within a New York-Italian banking family leads to conflict and hatred.
The disintegration of large families is a popular theme with American film-makers, and director Joseph L. Mankiewicz has made a successful movie working within this framework. Edward G. Robinson , who made his reputation in the gangster film "Little Caesar" way back in the 1930s, seems to have changed little since and always turns in a consummate performance; his role as a hard-headed banker in "House of Strangers" is no exception.


Screenplay: Philip Yordan
Based on a novel by: Jerome Weidman
Producer: Sol C. Siegel
Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Gino: Edward G. Robinson
Max: Richard Conte
Irene: Susan Hayward
Joe: Luther Adler
Pietro: Paul Valentine
Tony: Efrem Zimbalist Jr.
Maria: Debra Paget
Helena: Hope Emerson

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
