Alfred Hitchcock – Strangers on a Train (1951)

One of Hitchcock’s best. Lengthy sequences that sometimes seem to continue too long prove merely to keep one’s view in a kind of suspended concentration. Like being on a merry-go-round. Robert Walker is superb, and Ruth Roman excellent. I caught the pun on Pluto at the Tunnel of Love, but it took me a while to work out the visual pun with the double bass.

Still from Strangers on a Train. Farley Granger and Alfred Hitchcock.
