DIAL M FOR MURDER
1954, Warner Bros., 105 min, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Suave, cold-blooded Ray Milland plots to murder his beautiful wife (Grace Kelly) and leaves the key to their apartment outside for his hired killer (Anthony Dawson). When the killer has a bit of trouble - to put it mildly - with a pair of scissors, a new Pandora’s box of complications opens up. Unfortunately, scheming Milland may still be able to pull off his plan - that is, unless Kelly’s old flame, Robert Cummings, and unflappable Scotland Yard inspector John Williams can determine what really happened that fateful night. Maestro Hitchcock masterfully adapts Frederick Knott’s hit stage play to the big screen (it was originally presented in 3-D).

THE GLASS WEB
1953, Universal, 81 min, USA, Dir: Jack Arnold

Before emerging as one of the 1950s’ top sci-fi directors, Jack Arnold (CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON) turned his attention to film noir for this tense drama set in the then-new world of television. John Forsythe and Edward G. Robinson star as head writer and researcher, respectively, on a true-crime TV program. Both men are involved with femme fatale Kathleen Hughes; when she is murdered, the case is chosen for the season finale – but will the script reveal her real killer?
