DIAL M FOR MURDER (1954)
Alfred Hitchcock - Nominated by Director's Guild of America - Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures
Tony Wendice is an ex-professional tennis player who lives in a London flat with his wealthy wife Margot. Tony retired after Margot complained about his busy schedule and she began an affair with American crime-fiction writer Mark Halliday, which Tony secretly discovered.
Motivated by resentment, jealousy, and greed, Tony devises a plan to have Margot murdered. When things go wrong, he improvises a brilliant plan B.
In June 2008, the American Film Institute revealed its "Ten Top Ten" list—the best ten films in ten "classic" American film genre—after polling over 1,500 people from the creative community. Dial M for Murder was ranked the ninth best film in the mystery genre.
