Added DiffLines:

* ImperiledInPregnancy: Miriam is pregnant at the time of her murder. (In the book, she has suffered a miscarriage shortly before that point.) Oddly, nobody seems particularly concerned by this fact, perhaps because she's an AssholeVictim.

The movie was based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith (of ''{{Ripliad}}'' fame) and had a screenplay originally written by Creator/RaymondChandler (before he was fired and replaced). The book and the movie are the {{Trope Namer|s}}, {{Trope Maker|s}}, and TropeCodifier for StrangersOnATrainPlotMurder, although there's a lot more to the story than [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame just that one trope]]. The 1987 comedy ''Film/ThrowMommaFromTheTrain'' is part parody, part remake and part homage of this film.
