3 things about Alfred Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER

Dial M for Murder [1954]

1. Scissors from her mending basket.
2. Luminous green bedside clock.
3. A bottle of lighter fluid. High-waisted pants, suspenders, a tucked-in necktie.

It’s definitely a more involving film in 3-D. Hitchcock is extremely restrained in his use of effects, which just means that as a member of the audience you feel more a part of the world onscreen. It’s still very talky, but the talk becomes more interesting. Also, Grace Kelly.
