Thoughts on Strangers on a Train

-Farley Granger is kind of awesome. How have I never noticed that before?

-Just kidding, Robert Walker is kind of awesome. Then again, I watched the British version (I don't know why they call it that--this version never played in England), so that might've had something to do with his more psychotic incarnation.

-Hitchcock's daughter has a semi-major part, as the dowdy, bespectacled younger sister of Guy (Granger)'s fiancee Anne Morton (Ruth Roman).

-Guy's wife really is a bitch.

-What's left to say? Even if I didn't have any qualms with this (certainly not Hitchock's masterpiece, but a fantastic thriller nonetheless), I don't particularly care to get yelled at by outraged enthusiasts.

-Never mind. I hated the ending.

It's a flawed movie but it's always been one of my favorite Hitchcock flicks.
