Dial M

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
