    Synopsis


    Love with the Proper Stranger
    Taken for granted by her Italian family, New Yorker Natalie Wood seeks solace in the arms of irresponsible jazz musician Steve McQueen. She becomes pregnant, but doesn't expect McQueen to marry her; all she wants is enough money to pay for an illegal abortion (this is ten years before Roe v. Wade). Not surprisingly, McQueen is refused a loan by his girl friend Edie Adams; meanwhile, Wood is being pressured by her family to marry gormless Tom Bosley. As the abortion appointment approaches, McQueen begins to feel guilty, but still won't propose. Bosley finds out that Wood is pregnant, and is willing to make an honest woman of her. Wood finally makes up her mind what she's going to do and whom she's going to choose when she walks into the seedy abortion clinic. Though very dated, Love With the Proper Stranger is still dramatically viable, thanks to the on-screen rapport between Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen, and to the large and talented New York-based supporting cast. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      My mother has been waiting years for a quality copy of Love with the Proper Stranger on DVD to be released and now it's a reality! A good movie (to me) but one of her all-time favorites. I looked at the picture quality as she watched it and it looks great....clean and sharp. Sound is good for it's time. And yes, it offers subtitles too (Mom is hard of hearing). Don't recall if it has extra features....but just having it on DVD is such a plus over those cheap pirate versions (yes, she got burned buying one of those). If you are a fan, get this excellent DVD.

      The acting in this film is superb. It is one of Natalie Wood's best performance. Overall, I highly recommend.
