Today I'm on a Grace Kelly kick, as I have purchased "Dial M For Murder" on DVD. I will probably watch it tomorrow.

And as we are getting closer to what would have been Grace's 85th. birthday (November 12), let's get this cool topic revived with another nice photo.

Dig those gloves ! :

I watched the Blu-ray of Dial M for Murder a few weeks ago and saw it on the big screen in 3D last year. It's a superb movie. Quite underrated in some ways, but I love the performances, stately pace and Hitchcock's direction. His framing and composition was keen as mustard here, but it's the intricacies that makes this movie fascinating. This, and John Williams' wonderful performance as the Chief Inspector. He's almost like a prototype for Columbo. And Grace Kelly is just sublime, of course.

Yes, John Williams is always a delight to watch. He also appeared in several episodes of Hitchcock's TV series, in one of them portraying a killer, which is a bit shocking as one tends to think of him as the nice gentleman we see in "Dial M For Murder", for example.

And I agree that he's something of a pre-Columbo in that movie. He never lets up, until he finds the key (pun intended !) to the mystery !

Thanks !
