A classic

I'm pretty sure I already saw this one but it was really a long time ago so it was really time for a re-watch. And, once again, it was just another great flick by Alfred Hitchcock. What I love about his thrillers is that they are smart and totally make sense. I mean, when the protagonists go further with their actions, take some crucial decisions, you understand why and it makes the whole thing mu... read more

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that Dial M for Murder is “minor” Hitchcock. Released during the height of his most fertile period, and in the same year as the indomitable Rear Window, Dial M for Murder is only “minor” when placed next to that canonized classic. On its own merits, it lays the groundwork for the self-reflexive works to follow, the aforementioned Rear Window along with Vert... read more

(OK) Relatively 'stagey' Hitch, 3D or not. Crime is as explained as in Rope, with suspense and twists, thats ok; and from the windoy there's an intuition Rear window that came next..

Margot Wendice (Grace Kelly) is a wealthy heiress whose playboy husband, Tony (Ray Milland), recognizes his dependence on his wife's fortune. When Tony begins to suspect he is losing Margot's affection to writer Mark Halliday (Robert Cummings), he also begins to fear he will lose her wealth. This leads the callous husband to craft a plan for his wife's death. However, when the plan goes awry, Tony is quick to turn circumstance into a second opportunity to destroy his wife.

Film Diary 2021 (210 movies items)

" A very flawed and convoluted "classic", the plot takes some time to really kick off and is then twisted so many ways to have a so called happy ending with two adulterers winning against a sociopathic murder conspirator. Ray Milland and John Williams are great while everyone else is just meh, especially the Mark Halliday character whose white-knighting is"

" Date: 9/9/2020 Viewed: TubiTV Re-Watch Note: It's been a while since I have seen this movie and it holds up well. Dial M for Murder has a creepy story that deals with someone trying to threaten someone into murdering another person. The classic scene of Grace Kelly's character getting strangle is pretty scary and was disturbing at the time back in 1954. You can see how Hitchcock's style has influenced many people to make the Giallo genre a decade later with movies such as Blood and Black Lac"

2019 Diary: April (15 movies items)

"Second time watching this one but I was a kid when I saw it first. It is lovely. Roped my girlfriend into watching this one with me, and we had a great time. A real nice popcorn flick that wraps you around its finger until the very end. We where exclaiming at the screen and laughing and gasping as the various events unfurled. This movie absolutely holds up through a modern lens, all of these blue-eyed performances are still a treat to watch and it never leaves you bored. "
