A Film by any other Name............

It has always fascinated me that a film made here would often have it's title changed overseas and vice versa. Here is a prime example. Originally made and released in Britain as LOVE FROM A STRANGER (1937), by the time it reached our shores, it was now known as A NIGHT OF TERROR. A very nice Agatha Christie mystery, this little gem is seldom seen.
Let's face it, If we walked by a theatre marquee and saw the British title we might have continued walking. But, if we saw A NIGHT OF TERROR.....Wow! Here is the simple yet effective one sheet.
