Storyline

Bill Fleming is upset that his wife is having an affair with Philip Baxter, the most recent of a long line of lovers. Bill is an ex-boxer and an outdoors man and nothing would give him more pleasure than to wring Baxter's neck. When he mentions to his fishing pal that he has a large collection of dueling weapons, his buddy suggests that he challenge Baxter to a duel. He tells Bill that under California law, you get special treatment in the courts if you kill someone in a duel. Little does Bill realize that his fishing pal had a purpose in giving Bill the advice he did. Written by garykmcd

Strangers on a Train Redux
15 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The underlying problem is the fact that the jealous husband has allowed these goings on for so long. When he gets set up, we are a little embarrassed that we have to watch. For there to be a reasonable empathy, we have to care a little bit about the "victim." Because he is laughed at from the beginning, the little plot hatched by Mr. Morse seems really far fetched and improbable. There needed to be a greater appeal to Douglas's lack of manhood, something that would get him off his butt to act. The wife is herself a thrill seeker and it would seem that Douglas is in this position because she got tired of waiting for him to do something. Anyway, the ending was tipped off early on. When Robert Walker and Farley Granger got into a similar deal, the sociopath Walker was much more menacing. Below average effort.
