Dial M for Murder


An ex-tennis pro (Ray Milland) wants to have his wealthy wife (Grace Kelly) murdered so he can get her inheritance. When he learns she is having an affair, he comes up with the perfect plan to kill her: blackmail an old acquaintance into carrying out the murder. But the carefully orchestrated setup goes awry, and the scheming husband must outwit the police to avoid having his plot detected.

“Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller is a precision-engineered delight.” —Telegraph
