Tennis player Guy Haines and unstable wastrel Bruno Anthony have idle talk during lunch aboard a train, theorizing that two parties could execute perfect murders if they were utterly unconnected to each other, by swapping victims.

Among Hitchcock's finest films; received an Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography.
