Strangers On A Train

Presented in Celebration of The PEI Pride Festival

14A.
Dir: Alfred Hitchcock.
US, 1951, 101 min.
Farley Granger, Robert Walker, Ruth Roman.

“If Hitchcock is the Master of Suspense on screen, Patricia Highsmith has more than a claim to being the literary equivalent, and so this adaptation of her debut novel – with a screenplay written by Raymond Chandler, no less – was always going to be a triumph. The plot concerns a chance meeting between a charming psychopath and a tennis professional aboard a train, with the former proposing a deal: that they each commit a murder on the other’s behalf. The tennis player agrees, thinking his new acquaintance can’t actually be serious, but soon finds himself desperately having to prove his innocence. Full of his trademark suspense, it features some of Hitchock’s best set pieces – most notably a thrilling scene at a fairground towards the film’s conclusion.” —Patrick Cremona, Radio Times
