"In post-World War II Germany, a small boy who survivied Auschwitz wanders alone -- feral, mute and terrified. He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him. Starring a then-unknown Montgomery Clift in his movie debut, directed in a near-documentary style by Fred Zinnemann and filmed in the ragged, rubble-strewn skeleton of Nuremberg, The Search vividly captures the horrifying human cost of war. This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards: Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child."--Container

But he's marrying for a meal ticket. Stranger in Town stars Charles 'Chic' Sale, the vaudeville comic renowned for playing cantankerous old-timers decades his senior. Here, he's small-town coot Ulysses Crickle, whose tiny grocery faces ruin when a national chain opens a store right across the street. Look out, corporate fat cats: you don't know what competition is until you take on Ulysses Crickle!"--Container
