Letter From An Unknown Woman movie scene

Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan feel the love in 1948’s Letter From An Unknown Woman.

The classic 1948 drama-romance film Letter From an Unknown Woman comes from the great German-born filmmaker-gone-Hollywood Max Ophüls (Lola Montes).

In early 20th century Vienna, Stefan Brand (Louis Jourdan, Gigi) is in the process of fleeing Vienna on the eve of a duel he wants no part of. Before he can do so, he receives the titular, 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, Suspicion), a young woman he’s known, but disregarded for most of his life…

Written by Howard Koch (Casablanca), produced by John Houseman (Sorry, Wrong Number) and co-starring Marcel Journet and Mady Christians, the film makes its U.S. DVD and Blu-ray debut with this release.

There are no bonus features on the discs.
