Imbarco a mezzanotte (internationally released as Stranger on the Prowl, also known as Giacomo and Encounter) is a 1952 Italian drama film directed by Joseph Losey and featuring Paul Muni.[1] Muni traveled to Italy to star in the film partly as an act of solidarity and support for blacklisted friends living there in exile.


A disillusioned vagrant (Paul Muni) accidentally kills a shop owner, and is joined by a rebellious youngster in his flight from apprehension.
