Strangers on a Train
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3.5 Stars
Strangers on a Train Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: On TV Saw at/with:
Rating: NR Year: 1951 Category: Thriller
Director: Alfred Hitchcock Time: 101 min. Writer: Raymond Chandler & Czenzi Ormonde

Mine: Hitchcock is in top form here. Creepy and dark. Startling in many ways.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Walker gives his finest performance as psychopath involved with tennis star Granger in ``exchange murders. '' Lorne is unforgettable as doting mother; so is merry-go-round climax. First-class Hitchcock, based on a Patricia Highsmith novel and coscripted by Raymond Chandler. Remade as ONCE YOU KISS A STRANGER and the inspiration for THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN. British version of film, now available, runs almost two minutes longer, has a different ending and franker dialogue in the first scene where Granger and Walker meet.
