Farley Granger in Strangers on a Train

Actor Farley Earle Granger   In a career spanning several decades, he perhaps was known best for his two collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock, Rope in 1948 and Strangers on a Train in 1951.

His breakthrough role came in Hitchcock's 1948 adaptation of the play Rope, inspired by the thrill-kill Leopold and Loeb case, in which Granger plays an accomplice to a murder and then co hosts a party where the guests mingle, unaware that there's a dead guy stuffed in a trunk in the living room.

Starting 1960s Granger worked mostly in TV and theater.
