Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder ★★★★½

Exciting, well-paced Hitchcock thriller with a genius finale. Odd framing, but that's because of the 3D (which I would love to see). Milland is excellent but Kelly isn't given a lot to do, although she does get the most memorable scenes, esp the murder which feels like an early version of the shower scene, complete with audience identification. Has the same satisfaction as a good Columbo. Atypical Hitchcock.
