OTR – Strangers on a Train (1951)

On June 30, 1951, Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller, Strangers on a Train, was released to great reviews from both critics and audiences. Robert Walker played Bruno Antony, a man who comes up with the perfect way to kill his father when he meets tennis player Guy Haines (Farley Granger) on a train.

Less than six months later, Strangers on a Train was brought to life on radio when the Lux Radio Theater welcomed Ray Milland, who played Guy Haines, and Frank Lovejoy, who assumed the role of Bruno. It had a different tone with the radio setting and different cast members but just as exciting as the original film.

So turn out the lights and enjoy a journey back to the golden age of radio in those thrilling days of yesteryear!
