A classic Hitchcock thriller starring the director's favorite leading lady Grace Kelly, this film is loaded with drama as well as creative twists and turns. The story of a man who has decided to murder his unfaithful wife by coercing a criminal acquaintance into breaking into their apartment and strangling her, instantly draws the audience in and as the plot thickens when his plans are suddenly thwarted things really get interesting. The cast is amazing with Kelly and Ray Milland playing the leads and comedic actor Robert Cummings well cast as the charming home wrecker. Another noteworthy aspect of this film is that it is one of the few Hitchcock movies that's filmed like a stage play. But as with Rear Window it works very well with this particular plot line.

Ray Milland and Grace Kelly play an unhappily married couple in this Hitchcock thriller. Kelly has been unfaithful with an American writer played by Robert Cummings. Milland finds out but doesn't let on. He decides he wants his wealthy wife dead. Watch this one for a surprise ending.

This is the director at his best. Ray Milland is brillant as the villian as Grace Kelly is beautiful. Certainly worth buying.

Ray Milland and Grace Kelly star as an unhappily married couple living in London. Milland, playing retired tennis star Tony Wendice, finds out his wife has cheated on him with an American writer. He contacts a shady acquaintance from his university days and employs him to murder his wife. If the plot works, Milland will inherit his wealthy wife's money. Poor Grace Kelly, what horrors await.
