***************** I recently rented a DVD of Strangers on a Train and there was an American version of the movie on one side and a British version on the other. Great movie. I only watched one version. Smiled when I saw Hitchcock himself getting on the train. Although Highsmith might not be hardboiled, I think she is definitely noir. That's actually an assumption on my part. I have yet to read anything by Highsmith. Need to fix that one of these days.
