Dial M for Murder (1954)

An ex-tennis pro carries out a plot to have his wife murdered after discovering she is having an affair, and assumes she will soon leave him for the other man anyway. When things go wrong, he improvises a new plan - to frame her for murder instead.


I was very impressed with this film, especially the fact that the entire film besides one scene takes place in the same room. The camera angles were spectacular and the story line was very well thought out and interesting. Another great from Hitchcock!

Another great Hitchcock film with a comically awful closing scene/shot.

Very engaging and suspenseful movie with great performances by the lead actors.
