About the Movie

When American writer Mark Halliday visits the very married Margot Wendice in London, he unknowingly sets off a chain of blackmail and murder. After sensing Margot's affections for Halliday, her husband, Tony Wendice, fears divorce and disinheritance, and plots her death. Knowing former school chum Captain Lesgate is involved in illegal activities, Tony blackmails him into conspiring to kill Margot. When she kills Lesgate in self-defense, Tony implicates her as being guilty of premeditated murder. Halliday must out-stratagize Tony to save Margot's live.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [Hitchcock] tried once before, in Rope, to build up a whole continuous drama in one set. He wasn't as successful in that venture. Dial M has all the space it needs. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The fun of Dial M lies in its duel of wits... – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Dial M is less a filmed play than a highly cinematic investigation of theatricality. – B. Kite, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Was by far the most visually compelling of studio stereoscopic movies. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Simply brilliant

What else to say? Hitchcock at its best... Grace Kelly is so beautiful... One of the best thrillers of all times.... A must have in any collection. Thanks to Itunes for adding this title....

Frightening Film By An Amazing Director!

This is another spectacular film by Alfred Hitchcock that offers another great performance from Grace Kelly! As it is with most of his films, however, this is a very suspenseful film, like Rear Window (which is what Disturbia was based on) and, of course, Psycho. Thanks you, iTunes for this wonderful new installment!

Yes, this is a great film..

and I too would rather buy it! We just watched it on TMC last night as a matter of fact! And what a sit on the edge of your seat movie! Even though I've seen it many times before, I still was on the edge of my chair! As for renting, I don't. Years ago when VHS was all that was available, I did. But no more, I'd much rather buy a movie I really really like to see over again. Yes, I agree with some other statements, renting is not a great choice, I'd much rather buy. Plus, it looks like a movie I bought a while back is now on the rental only list. Interesting.
