Strangers on a Train 1951

On a train from Washington to New York, tennis star Guy Haines is provoked into conversation by a rich - and obviously neurotic - young man, Bruno Anthony. Guy wants to divorce his wife, Bruno hates his father. Half jokingly Bruno suggests the perfect crime - they will each commit the other's murder.
