In a career that spanned more than 50 years, Alfred Hitchcock filmed only one movie in 3D: Dial M for Murder in 1954. Notorious for deploying voyeuristic themes in his films, such as Rear Window and Psycho, Hitchcock practically puts you in the room—alongside Grace Kelly’s electric blond locks and dazzling red dress—where you play witness to a husband’s murder plot that is all the more lucid in three dimensions. Now catch Warner Bros.’ new digital restoration of this classic in a rare screening at Film Forum.
