Hitchcock's STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
Monday, December 14
(1951) 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. 35mm. Approx. 101 min.
“A FIRST-RATE THRILLER with odd little kinks now and then… Usually ranked among Hitchcock's best, its appeal is probably the linking of an ingenious plot with insinuating creepiness.”
– Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“A GRIPPING, PALM-SWEATING PIECE OF SUSPENSE!”
