Strangers on a Train


Plot – Guy Haines is a tennis champion who meets Bruno Anthony, a rich young man, by chance on the Washington train directed to New York. Guy wants to divorce from his wife Miriam to marry Anne Morton, so Bruno makes him a strange proposal: if Miriam refuses to grant him the divorce, Bruno will kill her, while Guy has to kill in turn Bruno’s hated father. Haines thinks it’s all a macabre joke and stops the conversation, but when Miriam vigorously refuses to grant him the divorce, Bruno strangles her. Now Guy has to be faithful to their pact and would like to report Bruno to the police, but he’s scared. When Bruno realizes Guy doesn’t want to keep his promise, he decides to take revenge.
