Here's a synopsis of the movie...

Dial M for Murder has a romping plot, a gloriously slimy villain and – thanks to the fact that the action is mostly constrained to one room – some of the weirdest, tricksiest camera work of Hitchcock's career.

The plot follows Tony Wendice's plan to have his wife, Margot, murdered so he can collect on her life insurance policy. A former tennis pro whose tour earnings are dwindling, he's also discovered that Margot is having an affair with a famous crime writer called Mark Halliday, who is visiting the couple from America. Wendice has blackmailed an old schoolmate to do the deed and plans to use a boys' night out with Halliday as his alibi. But when the murder's bungled and Margot kills the killer, he's left having to improvise.

Dial M for Murder - cert PG.  105 mins.  1954.  Starring: Grace Kelly, Ray Milland, Robert Cummings
