DIAL M FOR MURDER IN 3D
(1954) Filmed in 3-D though released after the craze had died down this thriller from Alfred Hitchcock is the first of three consecutive films in which the director used Grace Kelly as his female lead. When adapting a play for the cinema, most directors take pains to expand upon it, to make it look more natural and more picaresque. Hitchcock was always at his best when going in the other direction. He uses the claustrophobic locations to parallel characters’ sensations of being trapped. Hitchcock said of 3-D, “It’s a nine-day wonder, and I came in on the ninth day.”
