==============================================

I may be old-fashioned, but I thought murder was against the law.

This is yet another enormously improbable story that only Hitchcock’s genius can make enjoyable. There is little suspense here, and for a simple reason. The story is not just implausible: it is totally predictable. Even Hitchcock cannot make it suspenseful. But he certainly can – and does – make it tense, atmospheric and visually beautiful. That murder reflected in a pair of glasses and the final scene on that carousel badly in need of a speeding ticket are vintage Hitchcock. The cast helps, too. Hitchcock aside, the movie belongs to Robert Walker. Bruno is one of those irresistible psychopaths of whom Patricia Highsmith was a master creator, and while his theory that “everyone is a potential murderer” is not exactly original (Hercule Poirot, for one, was there first), his idea of exchanging murders is a splendid piece of mischief-making (hardly original either, but never mind). Yes, Bruno is quite a character: smart, rich, bored, suffering from massive inferiority complex and yet genuinely devoid of – to borrow a phrase from a very different movie – “delusions of morality”. Robert Walker makes him all that, but also gay, charming, suave and sinister. Totally unnerving performance! Farley Granger plays along bravely, but he is hopelessly outclassed and overshadowed. So, next time you meet a stranger on a train worth chatting with, be careful what direction the conversation might take. As soon as you hear anything about “swapping murders”, run as fast as you can in the opposite direction. ( )

Acting: 5.0; Theme: 5.0; Content: 4.5; Language: 5.0; Overall: 5.0; Another classic Hitchcockian thriller. Two strangers, one a star tennis player (Guy) and the other a coddled man of wealth (Bruno), meet on a train. Bruno discovers that Guy is battling his wife over a divorce and offers to kill his wife if Guy will murder Bruno's despised father. Guy wants no part of it, but Bruno goes through with killing Guy's wife and then trying to plant the murder on Guy when he still refuses to murder the father. Suspenseful throughout. Highly recommend. ***March 5, 2020*** (Watched with Jonathan) ( )

A crazy person murders a stranger's wife as a favor, and expects a murder in return.

Suspenseful. The ending is a bit disappointing; it turns into an action movie about 10 minutes from the end, which makes an exciting and memorable scene but it's not what the story needed. ( )

Hitchcock’s bizarre, malicious comedy, in which the late Robert Walker brought sportive originality to the role of the chilling wit, dear degenerate Bruno; it’s intensely enjoyable—in some ways the best of Hitchcock’s American films. The murder plot is so universally practical that any man may adapt it to his needs: Bruno perceives that though he cannot murder his father with impunity, someone else could; when he meets the unhappily married tennis player Guy (Farley Granger), he murders Guy’s wife for him and expects Guy to return the favor. Technically, the climax of the film is the celebrated runaway merry-go-round, but the high point of excitement and amusement is Bruno trying to recover his cigarette lighter while Guy plays a fantastically nerve-racking tennis match. Even this high point isn’t what we remember best—which is Robert Walker. It isn’t often that people think about a performance in a Hitchcock movie; usually what we recall are bits of “business” —the stump finger in The 39 Steps, the windmill turning the wrong way in Foreign Correspondent, etc. But Walker’s performance is what gives this movie much of its character and its peculiar charm.
