Strangers on a Train: A Hitchcock Classic (2004)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Peter Bogdanovich, Bill Krohn, Andrew Wilson, Richard Schickel, Robert Walker, Jr., Robert Osborne, Farley Granger, Joseph Stefano, Pat Hitchcock and her daughter Mary Stone are interviewed in this discussion of the classic STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. With various experts and people who were actually on set, one really gets a good idea of what went into the making of the film and why it turned out to be the classic that it is. We learn what originally drew Hitchcock to the film and Bogdanovich talks about how he really went on a high streak during this period because of what this film did and what films would follow. Walker, Jr. tells a few stories of his father coming home after shooting on the film and also talks about what he thought seeing his father playing such a bad guy. Several of the scenes in the film are discussed in detail including the opening shots of the shoes, Hitchcock's cameo and of course the ending. We also get some discussion on the "preview version" of the film as well as get an outtake and a deleted scene. Fans of the film should really enjoy this documentary that covers pretty much everything about the film with the weird exception of discussion of its release. Outside of this there's no question that this is a very fun documentary with several great stories that really put you there on the set. Fans of the film should certainly check this one out.
