Strangers on a Train (1951)


Alfred Hitchcock thriller about two guys who meet on a train which leads to some very tense moments and difficult challenges.  To me, this is a great starting point if you want to see the Master Director, Alfred Hitchcock, at work.

We all know that danger lurks, but most of us don’t spend much time thinking what if we met a dangerous, crazy person?  This move exposes the possibilities of what can happen when one NICE fellow meets a NOT SO NICE fellow and their lives are changed forever.

There are many memorable sequences in this film as some of the greatest scenes come from the fair / carnival.  It has intrigue, suspense, and a very memorable ending.  I have rated this movie 10 stars and I really love to watch this one…it has a very simple premise, but delivers on the story flawlessly…
