    Bruno’s house may have been in Darien, CT. I am not positive of this, but it does make sense as some filming was already done in Danbury, CT. Also, Darien is an affluent community.

    A follow-up; if you search through enough websites, you find Darien, CT under “Warner Bros. Production notes” for “Strangers on a Train.” That may be where I saw a reference to Darien, CT as a filming location, and that is where I suspect Bruno’s house was.

        It looks a lot like Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills where Edward Doheny was murdered back in the 1920’s. Exterior and interior looks similar, especially the staircase.

    I am watching this right now on amc. Wasn’t that the metropolitan museum of art where they were filming in one scene? Do you know which area where the black marble columns were .. in that filming location within the museum itself?
