Dial M for Murder
Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller was supposed to be released theatrically in 3D back in 1954. Now, it’s getting the 3D treatment on Blu-ray. That said, even without the effects, the story of former tennis champ Tony Wendice (Ray Milland) and his plot to off his unfaithful wife (Grace Kelly) would be a worthy purchase.
Warner Bros. restored and rescanned the film’s original negative, to upgrade it for today’s 3D-capable systems. Besides the 3D, the 1.85:1 image and the DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track, this 2-disc release has a blurb about 3D technology and one featurette titled, “Hitchcock and Dial M.”
