About the film:

An ex-tennis pro carries out a plot to have his wife murdered after discovering she is having an affair. When things go wrong, he improvises a new plan – to frame her for murder instead.

Adapted for film by Frederick Knott from his own stage play, with the touch of “the fine hand of Mr. Hitchcock as the goose-pimple horticulturist in the garden of motion pictures,” according Bosley Crowther’s original New York Times review.

Pressured by the studio to film in 3D, Dial M for Murder was Hitchcock’s first and only film shot in 3D, and theaters of the time largely screened the 2D version of the film. The Film Center is thrilled to present his 1954 film in this ultra-rare format.
