There is an older The Stranger with Loretta Young, Orsen Welles (sp?) and Edward G. R.  Robinson is a Nazi hunter.

They updated Return of Martin G. as Sommersby (sp?) with Richard Gere and Jodie Foster.

Thanks Judith. I am glad you mentioned THE STRANGER (1946). It crossed my mind earlier but then I forgot to include it in a subsequent post.

In a way this film is about two strangers who shake things up in town.

Professor Rankin a.k.a. Franz Kindler (Orson Welles) is a stranger to the community and very much a stranger to his wife (Loretta Young).

Then we have the investigator Wilson (Edward G. Robinson) who is just as much a stranger in these parts, out to nab Kindler.
