Description Bruno Anthony thinks he has the perfect plot to rid himself of his hated father and when he meets tennis player Guy Haines on a train, he thinks he's found the partner he needs to pull it off. His plan is relatively simple. Two strangers each agree to kill someone the other person wants disposed of. For example, Guy could kill his father and he could get rid of Guy's wife Miriam, freeing him to marry Anne Morton, the beautiful daughter of a U.S. Senator. Guy dismisses it all out of hand but Bruno goes ahead with his half of the 'bargain' and disposes of Miriam. When Guy balks, Bruno makes it quite clear that he will plant evidence to implicate Guy in her murder if he doesn't get rid of his father. Guy had also made some unfortunate statements about Miriam after she had refused him a divorce. It all leads the police to believe Guy is responsible for the murder, forcing him to deal with Bruno's mad ravings.

    Whoever did this Trailer did a fantastic Job.  Could you do one on The Talented Mr. Ripley or Carol which were based on Patricia Highsmith's Books.

    What an idiot!! Why would you call a fan-made trailer official?

    I love this trailer! The movie should be called criss-cross, though.

    This is NOT official!  It is a counterfeit "fan" trailer and to label it as you have is misleading and a waste of time to viewers not to mention piracy issues.
