Description : Alfred Hitchcock's 1951 thriller based on the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith (author of The Talented Mr. Ripley) is about two men who meet on a train: one is a man of high social standing who wishes to divorce his unfaithful wife; the other is an enigmatic bachelor with an overbearing father. Together they enter into a murder plot that binds them to one another, with fatal consequences. This Queer Film Classic delves into the homoerotic energy of the film, especially between the two male characters (played by Farley Granger and Robert Walker). It builds on the question of the sexuality the film puts on view, not to ask whether either character is gay so much as to explore the queer relations between sexuality and murder and the strong antisocial impulses those relations represent. The book also includes a look at the making of the film and the critical controversies over Hitchcock's representations of male homosexuality. QUEER FILM CLASSICS is a critically acclaimed film book series that launched in 2009. It features twenty-one of the most important and influential films about and/or by LGBTQ people, made in eight different countries between 1950 and 2005, and written by leading LGBTQ film scholars and critics. Jonathan Goldberg is a professor at Emory University, where he directs the Studies in Sexualities program. He is the author of many books and editor of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's posthumous 2012 book The Weather in Proust.

Description : "Strangers on a Train has lost none of its power to disturb…We will likely be reading Patricia Highsmith for the next one hundred years." —Paula Hawkins Just in time for the centennial celebration of groundbreaking noir fiction writer Patricia Highsmith comes a reissue of her propulsive, engrossing debut, Strangers on a Train, with a new introduction by best-selling author Paula Hawkins. Guy Haines and Charles Anthony Bruno are passengers on the same train. Haines is a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, Bruno a mysterious smooth-talker with a sadistic proposal: he’ll murder Haines’s wife if Haines will murder Bruno’s father. As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy finds himself trapped in Highsmith’s perilous world, where, under the right circumstances, ordinary people are capable of extraordinary crimes. The inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1951 film, Strangers on a Train launched Highsmith’s prolific career, proving her a master at depicting the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday life.

Description : The book about America de Tocqueville might have written had he spent some time in the nation's smoking sections Using two cross-country trips on Amtrak as her narrative vehicles, British writer Jenny Diski connects the humming rails taking her into the heart of America with the track-like scars leading back to her own past. As she did in the highly acclaimed Skating to Antarctica, Diski has created a seamless and seemingly effortless amalgam of reflection and revelation. Stranger on a Train is a combination of travelogue and memoir, a penetrating portrait of America and Americans that is at the same time an unsparing look in the mirror. Traveling and remembering both involve confronting strangers—those we have just met and those we once were—and acknowledging the play of proximity and separation. Diski has written a moving, courageous, and deeply rewarding book about who we are, and the landscapes through which we have passed to get there.

Description : This book is the first full-length study to focus on the various film adaptations of Patricia Highsmith’s novels, which have been a popular source for adaptation since Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train (1952). The collection of essays examines films such as The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Two Faces of January, and Carol, includes interviews with Highsmith adaptors and provides a comprehensive filmography of all existing Highsmith adaptations. Particular attention is paid to queer subtexts, mythological underpinnings, philosophical questioning, contrasting media environments and formal conventions in diverse generic contexts. Produced over the space of seventy years, these adaptations reflect broad cultural and material shifts in film production and critical approaches to film studies. The book is thus not only of interest to Highsmith admirers but to anyone interested in adaptation and transatlantic film history.

Description : The train changed the face of the world. From slow beginnings in the coalmines of England at the start of the nineteenth century, it was possible by the 1840s to cover vast distances at unprecedented speed, changing modern communications forever. Much more than a collection of models through the ages, The Train offers insight into the ways in which trains have made an impact upon the modern age. Admire some of the world's greatest trains from the New York Centrals sleek Twentieth Century Limited to the high-speed TGV of France, or Japan's Shinkansen "bullet train." Wonder at the splendid architecture of the world's great train stations, from the original Penn Station of Washington DC. Consider the role of trains in film, from Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train to Billy Wilder's Some Like it Hot.

Description : These thorough bibliographic entries serve as a guide for those who wish to do further research into the first 35 years of talking pictures. A brief history of this era of films, the studio system, and the society of which they were a by-product adds context to the entries and accents their significance. The author has chosen 1965 as the cutoff date because it marked the end of the studio system and the beginning of the independent filmmaking era. This guide highlights the people and the art of the glamorous days of filmmaking in which actors and actresses set the standards by which all actors have been measured since. The abundance of data collected in this guide reflects the exhaustive wealth of films and personalities associated with the golden age of moviemaking. Based on certain criteria such as the amount and availability of bibliographical material, notoriety, critical acclaim, and the number and quality of awards, the author has carefully selected the works and people included in this reference. Current and comprehensive, this reference tool includes bibliographical information that provides both positive and negative criticism and appendices, including an extensive general bibliography, lists of film festivals around the world, schools offering advanced degrees in film, and film museums and archives in the United States.
