Trailers from Hell Does a 'Dance with a Stranger'

Erudite TFH guru Brian Trenchard-Smith takes a look at yet another artful true crime drama, the 1985 doomed romance "Dance with a Stranger" starring Miranda Richardson in a star-making role.

Though the seemingly ubiquitous Albert Pierrepoint doesn’t appear in Mike Newell’s 1985 film about the notorious Ruth Ellis, he’s there in spirit, responsible as he was for Ellis’ execution, the last woman in England to be hanged for murder. Miranda Richardson stars as the star-crossed Ellis and Rupert Everett plays her two-timing lover and eventual victim, David Blakely.
