Cinema's 11 most memorable LGBT villains
Bruno Anthony from "Strangers on a Train"
As the title of Alfred Hitchcock’s noir thriller suggests, tennis player Guy Haines (Farley Granger) is on a train when he meets the psychopathic Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker), who quickly insinuates himself into the straitlaced athlete's life and cons him into swapping murders: Bruno’s father, and Guy's wife. The film is rife with homoeroticism (unlike Patricia Highsmith's novel, on which it's based; the lesbian writer expresses it more subtly): When Bruno tries to ease Guy’s visible discomfort at his prying, he says, “There I go again, too friendly. I meet someone I like, and I open my yap too wide.”
