See the complete schedule of films

(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.

REVIEWS

top

“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
