Highest Rated: 98% Strangers on a Train (1951)

Lowest Rated: 41% The Next Big Thing (2002)

Birthday: Jul 01, 1925

Birthplace: San Jose, California, USA

A handsome, polished leading man of the 1940s and 1950s, Farley Granger's most enduring roles were polar opposite characters in films for director Alfred Hitchcock. In 1950's "Rope," he was one-half of a scheming, self-satisfied duo who attempted to get away with the perfect crime, while in "Strangers on a Train" (1951), he was drawn into a murder plot by a deranged Robert Walker. The pictures were unfortunately the apex of his career, and he spent most of the following decades in television and on stage, as well as numerous international productions. The appeal of the Hitchcock pictures, as well as his steady presence in lesser efforts, preserved his star appeal for several decades until his death in 2011.
