Farley Granger - 1925 – 2011

Farley Granger is gone and he was a cool, interesting guy. Got fed up with the studio system and ran off to the theater (and Italy). He always did his own thing and he looked good doing it. He was bisexual and ultimately didn't seem to care who knew it.

Granger was great playing off the incredible Robert Walker in Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train." They had chemistry! Steve Hayes reviews the film, praising Walker's great sociopathic performance, but also touching on all the reasons why this is one of Hitchcock's best films.

Here's Farley on Hitchcock.
