Death of a Hitch­cock star

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Farewell Far­ley Granger. The clean-faced, nicely dressed star, best known for Hitch­cock’s Strangers on a Train, passed away this week at the age of 85. Other notable films in­cluded Rope (again for Hitch), Luchino Vis­conti’s Senso and the hit spaghetti west­ern They Call

Me Trin­ity.

It should also be noted that Granger, un­usu­ally in a busi­ness that re­mains pub­li­cally cau­tious about same-sex unions, was, in later years, ad­mirably frank about his bi­sex­u­al­ity. Robert Cal­houn, Granger’s do­mes­tic part­ner for 40 years, co-wrote the star’s au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, In­clude Me

Out. We would like to have seen more of him.
