Dial M for Murder
Frederick Knott's theatrical thriller, forever a staple of provincial playhouses, comes to the screen under the aegis of Alfred Hitchcock. Its cinematization, however, depends not so much on any overt attacks on its staginess and talkiness as on the simple imposition of 3-D; and not so much on any visible ministrations by its director as on his mere reputation. With Grace Kelly, Ray Milland, and Robert Cummings. 1954.
