It took until today to get around to watching Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers On A Train.
The movie must have hindered casual conversations with unknown passengers on various forms of public transport.
It also must have been a set-back for the merry-go-round industry as well.
Star Robert Walker would die not long after this movie’s completion.
His performance, both manic and restrained draws the viewer along.
The characters for whom we’re meant to have sympathy are not that compelling.
If things work out for them, it’s okay, but doesn’t feel like a biggie.
No, it’s Walker’s Bruno Anthony, and what’s going to happen to him that you’ll want to see.
