The second film in the Gulbenkian Cinema’s Gothic Season – Alfred Hitchcock’s Dial M For Murder (1954) – will screen on Saturday the 1st of Feb at 2.30 pm.
The Gulbenkian Cinema description of the film:
Alfred Hitchcock | US | 1954 | 105mins | Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings
Originally shot in 3D and newly remastered and restored, Alfred Hitchcock’s screen version of Frederick Knott’s stage hit Dial M for Murder is a tasty blend of elegance and suspense casting Grace Kelly, Ray Milland and Robert Cummings as the points of a romantic triangle.
Kelly won the New York Film Critics and National Board of Review Best Actress Awards for this and two other acclaimed 1954 performances. She loves Cummings; her husband Milland plots her murder. But when he dials a Mayfair exchange to set the plot in motion, his right number gets the wrong answer – and gleaming scissors become a deadly weapon. Dial “M” for the Master of Suspense at his most stylish.
“Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 thriller is a precision-engineered delight” – The Telegraph
