    [SIZE= 11pt]From Max Ophüls, the legendary director of The Earrings of Madame de… comes this deeply moving, timeless tale of love and obsession. In early 20th century Vienna, Stefan Brand (Louis Jourdan) is in the process of fleeing Vienna on the eve of a duel he wants no part of, however before he can do so, he receives an anonymous Letter From an Unknown Woman. Stefan is deeply moved by what he reads and starts to realize that the letter’s author is Lisa Berndl (Joan Fontaine), a young woman he’s known, but disregarded for most of his life. Screenplay by Howard Koch (Casablanca) and produced by John Houseman (Sorry, Wrong Number). [/SIZE]

    I like this too, I've seen it on tv a few times over the years. Lois Nettleton is a favorite of mine, her and Pamela Tiffin are great in it.

    Also released in the U. K. with poor picture quality. It looks OK on a small screen but go big and . . . .
