    • 9/9/12

    One of the greats from Hitch, no doubt, and clearly a filmed play, but twisty and clever. Takes a couple of viewings to get it straight. But along with Rear Window, Grace was never more beautiful. One of her failings is the phony British accent, but what a classic beauty.

  • Hitchcock's best

    • 8/13/11

    Brilliant film that follows the well-laid plans of a smug intellectual (Milland) to murder his wife (Kelly), and then his self-praised attempts to salvage them when things naturally go awry. Cummings and Williams are also excellent in this must-see film of justice being served.

    Frederick Knott brings his suspenseful stage play to the big screen as Alfred Hitchcock assembles an excellent led by Academy Award winners, Ray Milland, Grace Kelly and Robert Cummings in a murder-mystery about a retiring sports enthusist (Milland), who plans to murder his beautiful young wife (Kelly) after learning she was having an illicit affair with a young screenwriter (Cummings), but the plan goes awry, and she is arrested for killing her would-be assailant. Stagey at times, but slick and entertaining. Originally filmed in 3-D. With John Williams, Anthony Dawson, Leo Britt, Patrick Allen, George Leigh, George Alderson & Robin Hughes. Remade in 1981 with Angie Dickinson and Christopher Plummer, and in 1998 under the title of "A Perfect Murder".

    • 2/10/10

    This is one of (if not my actual) favorite films directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It was a fresh murder mystery, being especially unique since, as the viewer, you know exactly how the murder happened and have witnessed what did as opposed to what was meant to happen--while you watch the police attempt to uncover what really took place. Grace Kelly is unparalled--she truly shows her metal has an actress here.

    Excellent Alfred Hitchcock suspense thriller, and it is brimming with his classic touches. Great atmosphere and the pace is excellent, well produced. Grace Kelly is terrific as the innocent wife, Ray Milland does a good job as well.

    Movies such as these are great because you can watch many times and still be entertained.
