Strangers On A Train, a masterpiece, presented here in a finely produced HD release.
Great transfer, great black and white contrast. A film of noir moments galore.
Robert Walker is fabulous as the twisted Bruno. Buy it!

Strangers on a Train Blu-ray, Special Features and Extras:

Commentary by Peter Bogdanovich, Peter Benchley, Alfred Hitchcock and many more.

Strangers on a Train Preview Version (SD; 1:42:57). This is the so-called "British" version of the film (which was included on the "flipper" DVD a few years ago) which runs about two minutes longer than the final cut and has some alternate takes. Interesting more as an "intellectual exercise" than anything else, but indispensable for those interested in seeing how Hitchcock continued to shape his films after an initial cut.

Behind the Story contains these featurettes:
Strangers on a Train: A Hitchcock Classic (SD; 36:44) is a nice overview with Peter Bogdanovich and several others discussing the importance of the film in the Hitchcock canon;
Strangers on a Train: The Victim's P.O.V. (SD; 7:22) focuses on Kasey Rogers, who performed under the name Laura Elliot in the film;
Strangers on a Train: An Appreciation by M. Night Shyamalan (SD; 12:46) has the director espousing his love for Hitch and the film;
The Hitchcocks on Hitch (SD; 11:20) features Hitch's daughter and granddaughter talking about Hitch. This includes lots of great home movies;
Alfred Hitchcock's Historical Meeting (SD; 1:08) is a weird little snippet without sound that shows Hitch interacting with actors made up as historical characters.

Theatrical Trailer (SD; 2:34)

2 Disc 2004 Warner Bros edition- As this film is well described In many other reviews I'll just give an overview of what's on the discs. Disc1 contains a good looking print with subtitles + French & Italian dubs+ an interesting commentry with various people talking about the film,book and much else: for Hitchophiles the highlight being interview segments of Peter Bogdanovich questioning the man himself and a trailer. Disc2 contains a(slightly longer)'preview version of film,a 36 min appreciation ,a 7 min feature with 'murder victim'Laura Elliot,an 11 min Hitchcock family feature and a12min appreciation by M.Night Shyamalan- all in all a good package currently available at a good price.

A very good Alfred Hitchcock film. Saw the film years ago and enjoyed it. Still love the film today. It is a first class film with a good ending. Love black and white films. Be careful who you talk to on trains! Would recommend this film to everyone.

Wonderful story very different to Hitchcocks other films. I was on edge right until the end (not giving anything away). Great acting and storyline kept me on tenterhooks. Recommend to all Hitchcock fans - can you find him in the film?

Classic thriller from the hands of Alfred Hitchcock. Lots of film intertextuality... watch out women who wear glasses!
