      camille l Petit film noir sur un orphelin juif new-yorkais élevé dans un pensionnat catholique en compagnie d'un autre juif joué par Steve McQueen, qui deviennent ennemis quand le premier devient parrain d'une mafia et l'autre inspecteur, Never Love a Stranger se plante totalement sur le côté religieux (qui est pourtant partie intégrante de la première partie mais qui est si mal racontée qu'on a du mal à saisir les difficultés des deux héros) mais marche plutôt bien sur le côté gangster, avec une seconde partie vraiment intéressante. Si John Drew Barrymore est le moins doué de la famille, Steve McQueen et Lita Milan sont plutôt bons. Le film de Robert Stevens est aujourd'hui totalement oublié et n'est vraiment nécessaire que pour les completionists de McQueen. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member an actual good film. set around a troubled orphan from a 'catholic' background who when he's 16 gets into trouble with the mafia and befirends one of the leaders, down the road he gets more involved, but with two friends helping him. with a beautiful ending and last line that explains it all. to say this is a film made in the late 50's, its holds it own, standing as an interesting and hooking drama, with an impressive cast and well known star steve Mcqueen. also john drew barrymore playing the lead is a good actor. if you have a tast for dramas, a bit of trouble and good acting then this is a film to try... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Steve McQueen's first credited role is a steady supporting act for an excellently directed and highly entertaining story of tested friendship over time.
