Format: DVD
To start off, I should first state that, for the most part, most of Alfred Hitchcocks films are uniformly excellent by any standards. What sets Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, North By Northwest and say, perhaps, Shadow Of A Doubt apart from the rest of his films is best described in one word, cleaverness. In fact the phrase, "He was a cleaver fellow" is mentioned in another very cleaver film, Strangers On A Train. An early 50's masterpiece that has stood the test of time and continues to enthrall viewers. The final carney sequence is probably studied by more film schoolers than any scene from any well constucted film. The real genius here is how the story builds starting with a chance meeting between two strangers. Bruno Anthony (with robust flair deceptive motivation) is played by Robert Walker. He meets up with top seated tennis player, Guy Haines (Farley Granger).Both of them have the same problems in common; there are people in their lives that must die. Now, in todays day in age of murder and mayhem in film, a simple clean strangulation like the one perpetrated by_____, may not come off as satisfying enough to the blood thirsy viewer. However, Hitchcock uses the camera lens and inventive ways of showing the process of murder. Unlike Sam Peckinpah who would make sure you felt every aspect of the killing, Hitch uses shadow and light, with the help of a pair of bifocals.
The acting is great. Pat Hitchcock has her greatest screen role in this one and does a good job. Along with Psycho, this is one of only two films in which Alfred's daughter had a part. The part she plays here is a supporting role that is more prominent than the one in Psycho where she plays Marion Cranes co-worker at the bank.

Format: DVD
A very, very good movie. What makes it so good is the utter credibility of Guy's actions and responses to Bruno's unrelenting push to have him kill his father. The scene at the cocktail party gave me the creeps, and I feel the same each time I see it. That is probably the definition of an exceptional work, that you never tire of it, and that it always tugs at you one way or another.

This movie is great and the two versions on one disc is a great bonus. However they made a mistake on the description of this movie it is not and never will be a widescreen film. So relax SRGRANGER its okay you have the movie in it's original form.

Format: DVD
I recently purchased, yet , another copy of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN because the description of this edition read WIDESCREEN. Lured by that promise, I again spent the money, because the copy I already owned was not widescreen. To my great disappointment, I have learned (by watching my newly purchased DVD) that my new copy is, in fact, the exact same edition I already owned: STANDARD format and NOT WIDESCREEN. Beware the description for this issue: it misinforms. If it is WIDESCREEN you want, this is not it!

This is one of my all-time favorite thrillers. The Hitchcock touch is always unique. The evil is so well disguised that it's almost imperceptible. A fine line is drawn between madness and inherent evil. The likeness between the victim and the hero's girlfriend's sister (played by Hitchcock's own daughter) is uncanny. You're made to hold your breath from beginning to end. This movie never ages.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 23 2014
Format: DVD
Having a stalker is probably the worst nightmare of any celebrity. But it could be worse -- it could be a stalker who demands "criss-cross" murders.

Such a scenario is what drives "Strangers on a Train," one of Alfred Hitchcock's more oddball movies. The performance by Robert Walker as a fey, psychopathic man-child is absolutely stunning, and the creepy tension of the story is wonderfully unnerving. It's almost enough to make you not notice how weird the entire climax is.

Tennis star Guy Haines (Farley Granger) is heading back to his hometown to divorce his nasty wife Miriam (Laura Elliott), who is pregnant by another man. While on the train, he encounters a gushing fan named Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker) who has found out all about Guy's woes from the tabloids. He proposes "criss-cross" murders -- he'll murder Miriam, and Guy will murder his dad.

Guy thinks that Bruno is just a random weirdo... until Miriam is found strangled. Now Guy is the primary suspect in her murder, and he also has Bruno stalking him with demands that Guy kill his dad. Guy's girlfriend Anne (Ruth Roman) begins to figure out what is going on in her fiance's life, even as Guy struggles to find a way out of this mess without being implicated by Bruno.

Alfred Hitchcock had a special knack for coming up with "realistic" nightmares -- people unjustly accused of crimes, often trapped in a horrible situation that they can't really get free of. "Strangers on a Train" has that fun scenario, but adds the extra joy of a celebrity stalker who is trying to force the protagonist to commit murder.
