Dial M for Murder

1954 Hitchcock thriller about an ex-tennis pro (Ray Milland)'s second attempt at killing his wife (Grace Kelly). Having botched his first go, he formulates a seemingly foolproof plan B. Based on play by Frederick Knott, the film's action plays out within only two settings.

The film was originally released on 3D, a version that is still heralded as one cinema's best examples of the potential for the eye-popping effect. The American Film Institute named Dial M for Murder the ninth best mystery film of all time.

Dial M remains more of a filmed play than a motion picture, unfortunately revealed as a conversation piece about murder which talks up much more suspense than it actually delivers.

Hitchcock tried once before, in Rope, to build up a whole continuous drama in one set. He wasn't as successful in that venture. Dial M has all the space it needs.
