Strangers on a Tennis Court

Happy belated Labor Day to all my movie peeps! OK, so much for the lingo. Will have another post later this week. Until then, go Melanie Oudin at the U.S. Open! An unknown making it to the fourth round at Wimbledon and now in the quarters of the U.S. Open. Would love to see a Serena Williams/Melanie final on Saturday. Until then, here's a film with a tennis scene ... Alfred Hitchcock's wonderful "Strangers on a Train." Go Farley!

  1. I don't know if it's true or not, but supposedly Humphrey Bogart's first dialogue as a professional actor was a stage appearance in the 1920s when he played a Long Island socialite sort and entered a party scene and asked "Tennis, anyone?"

  2. I've heard the same thing. Should look into that one!
