        Comments about this product:

        Here is a classic Hitchcock film. He was recovering from a run of several poor films when he made this, and came back with full force. "Stranglers" refers to one of the features of the movie, and to the ad campaign, which featured Hitch removing the "l" from the title to make the word "Strangers." Ruth Roman is not the best actress, but - guess what - Hitch's daughter Pat is full of fun and surprisingly good. The tension builds to the final scene in the fairground, then explodes. This was the second film (after Spellbound) to which Hitchcock provided an epilogue on a train. Overall, a great film. Supporting players include Norma Varden at a party and Marion Lorne, working on an unusual painting of John the Baptist.

The documentary "Strangers On A Train: A Hitchcock Classic". 3 featurettes- "The Hitchcocks On Hitch", "Strangers On A Train: The Victim's P.O.V.", & "Strangers On A Train: An Appreciation-by M.
