Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder ★★★½

Ray Milland as a former tennis pro who plots to murder his unfaithful wife played by Grace Kelly. What at first seems like the perfect murder plan goes horribly wrong. Originally shown in 3D this stagy thriller is a little drawn out and feels a bit like a Columbo episode but it's still worth watching thanks to good cast and some nice flourishes from Hitchcock. Not his best but still enjoyable. See it in 3D if you can. Hitchcock creates tremendous depth of field with the 3D effects making it feel like a live performance.
