Never love a stranger. Call no man foe, but never love a stranger. Build up no plan, nor any star pursue
Never love a stranger. Build up no plan, nor any star pursue. Go forth with crowds; in loneliness is danger. Thus nothing God can send, And nothing God can do. Shall pierce your peace, my friend. From the poem To The Unborn, by Stella Benson as published in Twenty.
Never Love A Stranger is a 1958 crime and gangster film that is based on Harold Robbins' 1948 debut novel with the same title. The film was shot in black and white starring John Drew Barrymore and Robert Bray, and featuring a young Steve McQueen. Frankie Kane (Barrymore) is brought up in a Catholic orphanage. He befriends a Jewish law student named Martin Cabell (McQueen) and becomes romantically involved with Cabell's maid, Julie (Lita Milan).
Never Love a Stranger, still considered one of Robbins’ most powerful books, tells the story of Francis Frankie Kane, an orphan growing up in the dirty world of New York’s Hell’s Kitchen. But Frankie’s childhood friend, Jerry, grows to become an ambitious, tough-as-nails district attorney-determined to bring Frankie down.
Never Love a Stranger book. I'll have to say I found the story line interesting and the protagonist sympathetic (he was based on Robbins' childhood).
