Strange Illusion is a 1945 American film noir. This thing is a budget B. If there is any better copy of this, it isn’t mine. It’s still worth a watch. Reminiscent of a time when movies didn’t cost a hundred million bucks but had actual talent. It’s an Ulmer movie, that might get your attention about a man who is afraid of his mother’s boyfriend. Good performances and a decent plot.
