Distaff remake of Hitchcock's classic STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
Patricia Highsmith's celebrated crime novel STRANGERS ON A TRAIN has been remade several times since Alfred Hitchcock's 1951 masterpiece (e.g., Once You Kiss a Stranger and Throw Momma From the Train). How is it possible therefore that the originator of this "criss cross" premise goes uncredited in this tepid TV version starring Linda Gray and Linda Purl? It's more than merely a conspicuous oversight. Instead it's the most blatant instance of plagiarism I've ever encountered.
