Dial M For Murder (1954)
This is one of Hitchcock's best films and surprisingly one I had never seen before. There are many people in the film world (myself included) who believe very strongly that 1939 was the Greatest Year of Hollywood Ever - I would like to nominated 1954 as second greatest. Besides this, you had On the Waterfront, Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Caine Mutiny, White Christmas, Rear Window, Sabrina, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - the list goes on and on. Grace Kelly is perfectly cast as the unfaithful wife targeted for, and then framed for, murder. The scene with the scissors is one of Hitch's best.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
