Strangers on a Train is a 1951 thriller starring Farley Granger and Robert Walker and directed by the famed master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Walker plays Bruno Anthony, a a crazed, worldly man who stands to inherit a large sum from his aging father who, in Bruno's opinion, can't die soon enough. While traveling by train, Bruno meets Guy (Granger), an accomplished and famous tennis star caught in an unhappy marriage to a promiscuous woman, Miriam (Laura Elliot). Guy's marital troubles have been well-publicized by the media, and his unfortunate situation becomes the subject of their conversation. Bruno suggests they exchange murders in a bloody quid pro quo-Bruno will kill Guy's wife and Guy will kill Bruno's father. Guy, shocked at the strange man's suggestion, leaves the train car quickly. However, Bruno believes the plan has already been set in motion. As the two men struggle to outmaneuver each other in the deadly trade, they must step carefully or risk spending the rest of their days in prison. Strangers on a Train is classic Hitchcock suspense, co-starring Ruth Roman and Leo G. Carroll.moreless
