Dial M for Murder - 3D

The 1950s are the best years in the career of the Master of Suspense, when Alfred Hitchcock directed one memorable masterpiece after the other. Take Dial M for Murder, a claustrophobic thriller in which, as is often the case, the leading role is played by an aloof, beautiful blonde: Grace Kelly. The film was shot in 3D originally, but this version was rarely seen due to various projection issues. Following a restoration in an English studio, the film can now be seen again in all its 3D glory.

Tony Wendice, an English tennis player, is married to wealthy Margot (Kelly). She is however having a love affair with crime writer Mark Halliday. Fearing he will end up impoverished if Margot dumps him, Tony decides to get rid of his wife. He blackmails Charles Alexander Swann into getting the job done. They plan the murder down to the smallest details, so what could possibly go wrong?
