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

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.

"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. "

"Like his earlier 'Rope', Alfred Hitchcock made 'Dial M for Murder' as an experiment, in this case with 3-D techniques. Utlising another largely one-set play, Hitchcock introduced elements such as a giant phone prop which was dialed using a gargantuan representation of a finger and dug pits in order to shoot low-angle shots that resembled the viewpoint of an theatre-goer looking up at a stage. Unfortunately, Hitchcock's 3-D experiment coincided with a waning interest in the cinematic gimmick, the"

" The unbelievably beautiful Grace Kelly - probably the most gracious, intelligent, independent, gorgeous, fashionable and camera-loving starlet that Hitchcock ever had steals the show as a wife bound for murder as evil Ray Miland is a perfect icy and calculating killer-to-be husband and we follow his plan for "offing" her. John Williams also do one of his best roles as a snobby inspector. Witty dialogue and the script takes some good twists and the moment when Grace Kelly's hand reaches out for "
