$7.50 Member $13.00 Regular
(1951) Cheerful psycho Robert Walker makes fellow train passenger/tennis pro Farley Granger an interesting proposition: quid pro quo murders. Just a joke, but... Tour de force sequences include a tennis match intercut with a fairground stalking and the carousel gone haywire. Screenplay by Raymond Chandler, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel. Plus Hitchcock’s Psycho house tour! Approx. 106 min. 35mm.
“A FIRST-RATE THRILLER with odd little kinks now and then. It proceeds, as Hitchcock's films so often do, with a sense of private scores being settled just out of sight.”
– Roger Ebert
“Hitchcock’s bizarre, malicious comedy… it’s intensely enjoyable—in some ways the best of his American films.”
– Pauline Kael
