Synopsis:
Tennis star Guy Haines (Farley Granger) half-jokingly muses about killing his wife with a stranger he meets on a train, unhinged playboy Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker), who'd prefer his father be deceased. In theory, each could murder the other's victim. Crisscross. No motive. No clues. No problem... except: Bruno takes the idea seriously, with deadly consequences.

Terrific and slightly creepy thriller - Strangers on a Train review by IW

Spoiler Alert
05/05/2017

This is a terrific and slightly creepy thriller with many of the usual Hitchcock themes. The photography is beautiful and makes the most of the black and white film with many striking images which burn onto the retina and make this film very much one that can be seen repeatedly. One thing hasn't stood the test of time: the quasi-Freudian and to my mind bogus psychology which seems to hover in the background over so many of his films. Nevertheless a very enjoyable 97 minutes.

Enjoyed it but found it a bit outdated by today's standards, not one of Hitchcock,s best but interesting. with some clever photography.
