109. Strangers on a Train (1951)
In Hitchcock’s acclaimed thriller, Bruno (meets tennis star Guy on a train. When Bruno confesses he wants his rich father dead and Guy reveals that he wants to divorce his shrewish wife, Bruno suggests that they “trade” murders. Guy laughs off the suggestion … but soon finds out Bruno is perfectly serious.
Another Hitchcock movie and I loved it. I can’t seem to get enough of them as of late. Hitchcock builds the suspense masterfully leaving you at the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. I loved the idea that the main characters are strangers on a train who do not know their intended victims, that they have no motives and therefore have perfect alibis. A great story in 1951 and even now!
