A couple of months ago I posted a Horror Film Series. I included many of Hitchcock’s most famous films like Psycho and The Birds. New in the collection is another Hitchcock film called Strangers on a Train. We now have two copies of Strangers on a Train in the library, and one is a Blu-ray version!
As the title suggests, the film is about two strangers that meet coincidentally on a train and end up swapping stories of their troubles. At the end of their ride, they make a pact that involves the other person murdering the source of their problems.
If you play close attention, you will be able to spot Hitchcock as he makes a cameo as a train passenger carrying a double bass. Hitchcock can be seen doing a cameo in about half of his films. Below is an opening sequence to the film. Enjoy!
