Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The only relationship the 1991 made-for-TV Stranger at My Door bears to the 1956 theatrical film of the same name is in having a fugitive as a main character--actually, two fugitives. One of the runaways is Markie Post, a rich city woman escaping from her homicidal husband. She takes refuge in the barn of Texas dirt farmer Robert Urich. It turns out, that he, too, is on the run; he has been hiding from the law for years. The fact that Post is a murder witness will inevitably bring the cops to Urich's door--but if he throws her out, she will fall prey to her killer spouse. The violent final scenes of A Stranger at My Door segue into a happy ending for its stars.
