Alfred Hitchcock directed this suspense thriller from 1951, is a tale of two men with a bizzare plot. One man a tennis player name Guy Haines (Farley Granger) who is in a gentlemen's agreement with another man on the train name Bruno Antomy (Robert Walker). Guy will kill his father while Bruno will kill his wife. Along the way someone has cold feet, that's where the film get's more intense. that's what Hitchcock sees it, a powerful film about strangers who are doing each other's crime.
"Strangers on a Train" is a classic Hitchock. This is a director who loves to have you on the edge of your seat and he loves to surprise you.
Strangers On A Train was fantastic. It was the first time that I was able to see Hitchcock on the big screen and I was not disappointed. The Times Cinema is great! It's last showing was yesterday, but if and when it comes around again, do yourself a favor and see it.
This film, while over 50 years old, still brings about tension and suspense. And I've seen it about ten times before seeing it last night! Just amazing. I would have rated it see it now, but you can't until it comes around again. But see the master of suspense do what he does best: thrill you!
This is one of those classic movies that is so well-known, that you're almost embarrassed not to have seen it. I'm happy to say that I can mark this off my bucket list!
It is a well-done movie. Hitchcock does a great job of directing the proceedings, and he's given a cast that's equally up to the task.
While I knew the premise of the movie, I've always tried to avoid having the whole story and its outcome. If you are equally fortunate, you'll enjoy watching it play out and wonder just how it will end.
