Description
Heralded as one of the American Film Institute's Top Ten mystery films of all time, Alfred Hitchcock's taut thriller, while one of his less kinetic, is nonetheless an understated masterpiece of the genre. Adapted by Frederick Knott from his own successful stage play, Ray Milland stars as a retired professional tennis player who fears his life of leisure may be in jeopardy after he discovers his wealthy wife - Hitchcock favorite, Grace Kelly - is having an affair with crime-novelist Robert Cummings. A complicated plot to blackmail a petty crook into knocking her off so that he can inherit the fortune seems to work perfectly, until Kelly fights back - with unexpectedly deadly results. How the slippery Milland concocts and executes an equally diabolical plan B is just part of what makes the film a timeless classic.

      This movie is one I watch over and over again picking up bits and pieces I missed the last viewing. The actors are so spot on, the story line so original and the ending.... Well, see for yourself.

            Excellent movie. This movie was so good that they did a remake with Michael Douglas and Gwenyth Paltrow. The remake is a good movie but the original is great. The old movies did suspense so well and this is a great example of that. The characters are beautifully acted by a great cast that keeps you guessing till the end.

                Ray Milland is very good as the crafting murderer. grace Kelly is a bit stiff in the roll, but she is so beautful, she is definately one of Hitchcock's blondes! Good Movie!

                  A great thriller that I have recommend for friends, which is why I have to have another copy since it gets passed forward to their friends. The dialogue clicks and the tension build to a satisfactory climax. A Master production by a master director.

                      Dial M is a thoroughly engrossing film and easy on the eyes. It is really my cup of tea. As one said, the lead in the popular remake appears gawky compared to Grace Kelly. That's a good way to compare today's films in general. Clever, engrossing, well handled drama and mystery. Both stylish and human characters. Milland and Kelly -- oh yes, and with the wonderful John Williams. This film is a must-have for the DVD library of Hitchcock fans particularly.
