What is the movie Strangers on a Train about?
This 1951 psychological thriller, a Hitchcock classic, tells the story of two strangers who meet on a train and sort of hatch a plan to commit murders for each other, so that neither one of them would be suspicious. One of them is Guy Haines (Farley Granger), a well known tennis player stuck in a bad marriage with a promiscuous woman who he wants to leave. Or kill. He hasn’t really decided yet. Across from him sits Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker), a blooming psychopath who hates his father and makes the suggestion of exchanging murders. Haines leaves the trains clearly shaken, but thinks not much of it. A few days later he gets the news that his wife was strangled to death. Bruno insists that Haines keeps his part of the deal since Bruno has kept his. Haines even goes to Bruno’s house, but fails to come through. Bruno Anthony is now furious, and he tells Haines that if he doesn’t want to commit the murder he is supposed to, he will then pay for the crime Bruno committed on his behalf. Bruno even tells Haines that he will plant his cigarette lighter at the scene of his wife’s murder, and a frantic race ensues, with both men hurrying to the park, one to plant evidence, the other one to prevent him. Upon his arrival to the amusement park where he strangled Haines’ wife, Bruno is recognized by one of the workers who calls the police. Meanwhile, Bruno and Haines get into a fight on the carousel, the cops show up, and complete madness ensues, with the cops shooting the carousel operator and the machine spinning out of control and crashing to the ground. Bruno is crushed underneath it.

This is my first Alfred Hitchcock movie. This movie is quite good though I felt that the end was a bit anti-climatic. There are many unique shots in this movie. For instance, there is one murder in this movie .We get to see the act of murder on the broken glasses, which belong to the person getting murdered. Farley Granger did a good job. Ruth Roman was very charming. The movie is tense throughout first 1 hour, thanks to Robert Walker performance. He made the movie creepy & much more enjoyable. In the last half hour the movie is quite predictable. I think the ending could have been better . Nonetheless quite entertaining.

This might actually be my favorite Hitchcockian thriller ever. With its utmost realistic and thought-provoking story Hitchcock wanted to show the world that even some of the regular folks have their moments of sheer evil. When given a chance, they're able to construct a plan so diabolical in its simplicity, that its execution may be only a matter of time and a matter of blackmailing and ferocious persuasive skills.

With its drastically spellbinding noir atmosphere, and a mood so tense that it's almost distressing, Strangers on a Train shows a story so unusual, yet, surprisingly, so believable in its deep horror that it makes the viewer contemplate about its purpose and how he/she would react, drawn into a deadly intrigue of the most horrible kind. Farley Granger is stupendous as the loathsome, but perfectly adequate man, whose murderous plan seems to give him so much fun. Robert Walker is likewise as convincing as Granger in his depiction of a helpless young guy, who is unwittingly placed in a bizarre and shocking situation, without even a chance of turning back.

Two strangers meet by chance and this leads to a proposition that they "trade murders."
I personally think this is a fantastic thriller. The master of suspense unravels a compelling tale of a psychopath manipulating an average Joe into a complex murder plot. The one complaint I had with the film is that the characters are too black and white. There's never a chance that the "good guy" will yield to the "bad guy's" intentions, which would represent of a blurring of the "good" and "evil" lines and make for a more interesting character study.
Overall, the movie has it all: glittering set pieces, human psychology, and gripping suspense, this is one of the best suspense films of all times.
