      All the Kind Strangers from 1974 is one of those really weird movies that just doesn’t have much value in my opinion. If, and that is a big if, there is a message, it’s something about helping children who have no one in the world to guide them. That’s the best I can do, and

      that’s a bit of a stretch.

      Stacy Keach stars as a photojournalist named Jimmy Wheeler. He has the misfortune to pick up a young boy who is walking along a rural road and carrying a bag of groceries. This whole exchange is a little odd.

      Robby Benson fans might like the movie. He plays another oddball character and he actually sings the title song. He

      doesn’t have a great voice, though; at least, I didn’t hear much talent in it.

      John Savage plays the oldest of the siblings, and he was very believable as the creepy one.

      That said, there are some nice outdoor shots, but this movie is pointless and just a waste of time. Eggar is completely wasted in her role.
