Dial M for Murder

by Frederick Knott

Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a fee of one thousand pounds, and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately…the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn't baffle the husband: He sees his hireling's death as an opportunity to have his wife convicted for the murder of the man who tried to murder her. The police inspector from Scotland Yard and a young man who is in love with the wife discover the truth. Dial ‘M’ for Murder is not so much a “whodunit” as a “will-he-get-away-with it” thriller.

Directed by: Halli Watson and Jay Purdy
