DIAL M FOR MURDER
ALFRED HITCHCOCK | USA | 1954 | 105 MIN | PG | ENGLISH
Jealous ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice (Ray Milland) thinks he has it all figured out when he contracts an old university chum turned delinquent to murder his suspectedly unfaithful wife, Margot (Grace Kelly). With his charm and proper accent fully on display, Tony almost takes glee as he dances around his unbeknownst wife and her lover, famed American murder mystery writer Mark Halliday (Robert Cummings). But as his perfect murder begins to come to fruition, it’ll take Margot, Mark, and a very moustachioed detective to thwart the devilish deed. Featuring one of the most meta scripts of Hitchcock’s vast filmography of thrillers, DIAL M FOR MURDER invites the audience along to play detective as the Master of Suspense challenges viewers to find holes in a seemingly air tight crime. The film kicked off an extraordinary year for the relatively new to film Kelly and cemented her place in cinema history.
