PG
Strangers on a Train is the classic 1951 film noir from master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock. Guy (Farley Granger) is a tennis player, on a train to Forest Hills, NY with a stop to see his estranged wife, to finalize divorce papers. Bruno (Robert Walker) 'accidentally' meets him ' but the audience later figures out it was no accident: Bruno needed his father killed and proposed a 'criss-cross:' Guy would kill the old man, Bruno would kill Guy's wife, both would have alibis, both could get on with their lives after their respective nemeses were gone. Bruno would have inherited his wealth; Guy would be free to marry the politician's daughter. But Guy is an honest man and, even after his wife changes her mind about the divorce, just to keep him from marrying his girlfriend, he wants no part of the 'deal.' But Bruno kills the wife anyway - strangles her on an island in an amusement park, brings her glasses to Guy, tells him about it, threatens to say both plotted the murder if Guy went to the police, then gradually inserts himself into every facet of Guy's life, and expecting Guy 'to carry out the other half of the criss-cross.'moreless
