One Room Thriller

I had forgotten that most if not all of it happens in one single room. The planning of it is a display of extraordinary craftsmanship. Not a lagging moment. I was riveted to the, let's face it, preposterous plot from beginning to end. Ray Milland is a credible monster in elegant and civilized clothing. Grace Kelly, a peach as the unfaithful wife who stays home to cut newspaper clippings of her husband's past glories. Yeah, right. Robert Cummings has always been a mystery to me. A popular leading man with a long career. He only exudes a campy, if lightweight vibe that almost works in comedies and when he's in a supporting role - My Geisha and What A Way To Go with Shirley MacLaine are good examples. Here as Grace Kelly's secret lover, I don't know what to say. John Williams. very funny again as the Scotland Yard inspector, the same character to a T he played in Midnight Lace with Doris Day or was it his twin brother? In any case, no Hitchcock fan can afford to miss this filmed play, filmed by one of the undisputed greats.

Dial M for Murder

The filming in "Dial M for Murder" is done well, it expresses emotions and interactions between the characters. It is nice to see that the movie can keep its watchers engaged without having to change the set, aside from moving around in the Wendice's house. The casting is amazing, as the actors all do their parts flawlessly. The dialogue is probably my favorite part, because some of it is funny and some of it foreshadows, and it makes for a great plot. It's almost ironic that Mark partially uncovers what had happened, as he is a crime/detective writer. And even though Tony plans out everything, nobody can commit the perfect murder. 9/10

Dial M for Murder

"Well, because in stories things usually turn out the way the author wants them to; and in real life they don't... always." Yes, this murder didn't go quite as expected. In the beginning, the betrayal of Mrs.Wendice(Grace Kelly) gave the audiences a sense of leading turmoil, and Mr.Wendice(Ray Milland)' meeting with a special guest(Anthony Dawson) slowly revealed their conspiracy..."Dial M for Murder" was a crime drama that directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954, starring Grace Kelly, Ray Milland, John Williams, Robert Cummings and John Williams. This film described a tennis player Tony wants to murder his wife to obtain her possession after he found out his wife's affair with Mark Halliday. Tony came up a perfect plan of killing his wife that will create an alibi for himself. When things didn't happen as expected, Tony has trouble to prove his "innocent" to the inspector(John Williams) who later arrived the scene.The movie mainly shot in one room, which makes it harder for audiences to focus for a long period. Instead of changing in location, the fast pacing of the story constantly hooked audiences' attention.

The acting part was sophisticated which means every expression on their face tells their inner emotion. For example, when Tony's presses his lips together to force a stiff smile, it gives you an idea of untrustworthy.

The movie is one of those classic films you will watch over and over again without getting out of interest.
