In the movie Passing of the 3rd Floor Back from 1935, Conrad Veidt plays a mysterious stranger who checks into a run-down boarding house. His unconventional behavior immediately strikes the other tenants as odd, but they soon realize that his presence has a transformative effect on all of them. Each of the boarders is struggling with their own personal problems: the landlady, played by Rene Ray, is unhappy in her marriage; another tenant is a struggling artist who can't seem to catch a break; and still another is a manipulative flirt who constantly seeks attention. The stranger's quiet observations and gentle interventions eventually help each of them confront their shortcomings and find the courage to overcome them.

Frank Cellier plays the conceited and selfish Mr. Wright, who sees the stranger's arrival as an opportunity to advance his own interests. But as the stranger works his magic on the other tenants, Mr. Wright finds himself isolated and powerless.

Through their interactions with the stranger, the boarders learn valuable lessons about kindness, selflessness, and the importance of looking beyond surface appearances. As they begin to change for the better, the energy in the boarding house shifts and a spirit of hope and renewal takes hold.

The movie is a poignant exploration of the human condition, and Conrad Veidt's performance as the mysterious stranger is both compelling and nuanced. His quiet charisma and otherworldly presence imbue the film with a sense of magic and wonder.

Passing of the 3rd Floor Back is a must-see for anyone who appreciates thought-provoking dramas that explore the complexities of the human experience. Its message of redemption and hope is as relevant today as it was when the movie was first released more than 80 years ago.

Passing of the 3rd Floor Back is a 2009 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.9.
