Criss cross.” Hitchcock’s adaptation of Highsmith’s 1951 page-turner kicks off with a casual encounter that reads like a same-sex pickup, as tennis star Guy Haines (Farley Granger) inadvertently agrees to “swap murders” with preening rich kid Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker, in a career performance), and continues through some of the finest set pieces of Hitch’s career: a tennis match at Forest Hills, Bruno stalking his prey through a vulgar county fair, and an out-of-control carousel.
