Strangers on a Train

To all who responded with clues about films made from novels or stories by
Patricia Highsmith, I thank you. Just a footnote I stumbled across, and that
is the Billy Crystal/Danny DeVito film, THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN stole its
plot from STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. No mention of Highsmith in the credits. They
list Stu Silver as the writer yet there are clips from the Hitchcock film in
THROW MOMMA. Must have been some interesting negotiations on that one.
Other than that I think I have everything I need at this point. Thanks again.
