STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

Double Feature with DOUBLE INDEMNITY

(1951) dir Alfred Hitchcock w/Farley Granger, Robert Walker, Ruth Roman, Kasey Rogers [101 min; 35mm]
Chandler had a long and sordid affair with Hollywood – resulting in a slew of adaptations of his own work but also several credits as screenwriter. Though Hitchcock ultimately scrapped Chandler’s screenplay for STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, his influence on the final product can still be felt. The sharp dialogue has a distinctly Chandler-esque feel in this classic tale of two strangers who meet on a train and conspire to “trade” murders.

“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!” – Variety
