DVD review from The Movie Snob
Dial M for Murder (B). I acquired this Hitchcock classic as part of a “Turner Classic Movies” four-pack. It’s a pretty good little flick. The lovely Grace Kelly (Rear Window) plays a wealthy woman who is married to a British ex-tennis player but in love with an American mystery writer. Her husband is wise to her affair, but he is most distressed by the possibility that he will lose the lifestyle to which he has become accustomed. So he contacts a weaselly fellow he knew in college, and with the utmost urbanity he recruits him to commit the perfect crime–murder! I can say no more without perhaps committing unforgivable spoilers, so I’ll just say it’s a good movie. But I do think there is a rather big implausibility in the middle of it. Enjoy!
