STRANGE ONE, THE (1957) Archive of 20 photos


STRANGE ONE, THE (1957) [Hollywood]: Columbia Pictures, 1957. Archive of twenty (20) vintage original black-and-white photos, measuring from 7 1/2 x 9 1/2″ (19 x 24 cm.) to 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) Four keybook photos were mounted on cardboard by the studio, with studio stamps and descriptive text on verso, JUST ABOUT FINE.

Jack Garfein directed this film, adapted for the screen by Calder Willingham from his play END AS A MAN.

“A young cadet in military school (Ben Gazzara) takes brutal pleasure in mentally and physically assaulting his comrades; strange going-on with broom handles, enema bags, and gag reflexes pepper a narrative that continually conflates homoerotic innuendo with sadistic violence.” (Benshoff and Griffin, Queer Images, p. 90)
