DIAL M FOR MUR­DER (1954) GEM, 4.20PM, PG, THRILLER

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

This de­li­cious Hitch­cock thriller from the mid-’50s sees the mas­ter of sus­pense at the peak of his pow­ers. All the usual Hitch in­gre­di­ents – the blonde (Grace Kelly, above), the hand­some man with a dark agenda (Ray Mil­land) and a con­spir­acy that no­body will be­lieve – com­bine for a grip­ping dose of mur­der, in­trigue and dou­ble deal­ing. Kelly is su­perb as the un­faith­ful wife, whose in­fi­delity is dis­cov­ered by her hus­band (Mil­land). His plans for re­venge come up short when a hit man sent to kill her meets his own bru­tal end. Vis­ually sim­pler than some of his other noted films, with more than enough mind games. A must watch. ★★★★★
