C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: A Stranger In Town (1943)

Lots of World War II Home Front Message Movies have a message for us, today. Obviously.

Next week I'll get back to noir and dread, but this week, a little sub-tweeting.

Frank "The Wizard of Oz" Morgan is the centerpiece of this little gem from depths of World War II about a stranger passing through Anytown USA.

The movie is also a lesson in what it means to be a citizen.

Spoiler: indifference is not an option.
