STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
(1951, Alfred Hitchcock) Cheerful psycho Robert Walker makes fellow train passenger/tennis pro Farley Granger an interesting proposition: quid pro quo murders. Just a joke, but… Tour de force sequences include a tennis match intercut with a fairground stalking and a carousel gone haywire. Screenplay by Raymond Chandler, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel. DCP. Approx. 101 min.
(1950, René Clément) As the sun beats down on a boat in the Mediterranean, two men loll back: scapegrace playboy Maurice Ronet and hanger-on Alain Delon, sent by Ronet’s dad to bring him back. Which one’s going to leave that boat alive? And can he get away with pretending to be the other man? Delon’s star-making thriller smash, adapted from Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley. DCP. Approx. 118 min.
