  • Based on the popular mystery play by Frederick Knott, Dial M For Murder is more talky and stagebound than most Hitchcock films, but no less enjoyable. British tennis pro Ray Milland suspects that his wealthy wife Grace Kelly is fooling around with handsome American Robert Cummings.

  • 1954 was a big year for Grace Kelly. She played in Hitchcock's classic "Rear window" and she won an Oscar for best actress in "The country girl" and most people tend to forget that she starred in yet another classic, "Dial M for murder".

  • Hitchcock, Grace Kelly, Ray Milland, Bob Cummings, and the entire cast of Dial M for Murder were just excellent. I have seen this movie so many times that I can practically say the sentence right along with the actor.

  • According to Hitchcock, his filmography contained only a few "Hitchcock films". Rear Window was a Hitchcock film, Psycho was a Hitchcock film, The Lodger was the first Hitchcock film. Dial M for Murder should have made the cut. It's a film based on a hit play by a writer, Frederick Knott, who hated ...

  • An English police inspector passionately seeks justice and works hard trying to outwit a clever killer. Reflective of the time in which it was made (1954), the heroine is fragile, dependent, and hardly capable of making a decision for herself.

  • Grace Kelly in Dial M For Murder: 'refrigerated poise'. In the early 1950s, 3D cinema was coming to the end of its first wave, and Alfred Hitchcock decided to make a movie in the new technology: Dial M for Murder. Later, he wryly described it as coming in on the last day of a nine-day wonder. Now ...

  • Dial M for Murder. May 29, 1954, Page 13 The New York Times Archives. THE elegant coils of murder drama that Frederick Knott contrived in his play, "Dial M for Murder," a recent favorite on the Broadway stage, are given a proper twisting in the transmission of that play onto film.

  • The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers.

  • 'Dial M for Murder' is a talky drama with long segments of dialogue featuring no underscoring, so there's not a lot to evaluate from an audio standpoint.

  • Dial M for Murder is an American crime mystery film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings and John Williams.Both the screenplay and the successful stage play on which it was based were written by English playwright Frederick Knott.
