Classic Cinema for Film Aficionados

With our Public Performance Rights access via Kanopy Streaming Videos, Kahuku Public and School Library is happy to present this 1954 classic film:

Dial M for Murder

Ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice (Ray Milland) wants to have his wealthy wife, Margot (Grace Kelly), murdered so he can get his hands on her inheritance. When he discovers her affair with Mark Halliday (Robert Cummings), he comes up with the perfect plan to kill her. He blackmails an old acquaintance into carrying out the murder, but the carefully-orchestrated set-up goes awry. Now Wendice must frantically scheme to outwit the police and avoid having his plot detected.

Nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actress (Grace Kelly).

“The depth of focus, framing of characters and objects and use of the claustrophobic sets add extra pleasure to what was already a thoroughly enjoyable “perfect crime” nail-biter.” – Allan Hunter, Daily Express (UK)

 from the Kanopy website
