SYNOPSIS

The product of two masters of intrigue, Alfred Hitchcock and Patricia Highsmith, Strangers on a Train is a study of the perfect crime gone horribly wrong. Two men, Bruno Antony and Guy Haines (played by Robert Walker and Farley Granger), meet on a train; Bruno recognises Guy as a famous tennis star and, aware of Guy's public marital woes, proposes what he believes to be an unsolvable pair of murders. He will kill Guy's wife if Guy will murder Bruno's father, thereby giving both no clear motives and perfect alibis. What follows is a guilty-minded white-knuckle game of suspense as both parties careen unstoppably towards their fates.
