Terrific movie, marvelous restoration, outstanding use of the 3D
on 14 September 2013
If you have any problem with the 3D in "Dial M for Murder", you should really revise your system. It looks terrific, the restoration is sharp and pristine; no double images at all, at least in my Sony 55' with active glasses. Yes, rear projection is flat and some inserts are grainy, but that is precisely the way it was originally shot. The restoration is completely faithful to the original. Hitchcock made what is probably the most intelligent use of the 3D ever, making the movie look like a play on a stage (the story was originally a play). Grace Kelly's hand reaching out is the most carefully crafted and impressive 3D shot I have ever seen. The use of the 3D is so good that one eventually fogets about it and gets just immersed in the story. What else can be said? Oh, yes, of course, more 3D classics, please.
