STRANGER IN THE HOUSE is a British drama, from 1967, in which a once eminent barrister fallen on hard times decides to straighten himself out to defend his daughter's boyfriend who has been charged with murder.

Sex

There are scenes in which women perform striptease routines, which are curtailed before any notable nudity is shown. However, pictures of women on the walls of the striptease club, and on the covers of 'adult' magazines, display sexualised breast nudity.

There are infrequent scenes featuring marijuana smoking, accompanied by verbal references to drug misuse which the film as a whole does not glamorise or endorse. There is moderate violence and injury detail, as well as a scene of moderate sexual threat in which the intended female victim quickly turns the tables on her attacker. Discriminatory attitudes towards immigrants and gay people are demonstrated, but these reflect the era in which the film was made. There is also mild bad language ('bloody', 'bastards', 'damn', 'God').
