We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for DIAL M FOR MURDER (1954) by Hitchcock, Alfred (director).

Description:

Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card no. 2, USA. Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, John Williams, Anthony Dawson, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Warner Bros. Based on a Broadway play, the cat and mouse dialogued script took place mostly in one room, Hitchcock building the tension as only he could. Here is the climactic moment when Grace Kelly is about to answer the phone. Hitchcock requested that Kelly be costumed in a robe, but she insisted that the character would get up to answer the phone when alone at night wearing whatever she was sleeping in, thus Grace in her slip in the image. Hitchcock saw that she was right and allowed her to make her own costume choices from that point on. Filmed for 3-D, though released only for a short while in that version. There is a bit of light wear at the blank white margins and a light vertical crease down the card in the area just left of the telephone (barely noticeable). Pinholes at top corners have been filled-in. NEAR FINE. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Warner Brothers, 1954. No Binding. Book Condition: Near Fine. Set of two (2) vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) color-tinted single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photos, USA. Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, John Williams, Anthony Dawson, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Warner Brothers. Based on a Broadway play, the cat-and-mouse dialogued script took place mostly in one room, Hitchcock building the tension as only he could. In a tense moment when Grace Kelly has just killed the man who her husband hired to murder her, Hitchcock requested that Kelly be costumed in a robe, but she insisted that the character would get up to answer the phone when alone at night wearing whatever she was sleeping in, thus Grace in her slip in the image. Hitchcock saw that she was right and allowed her to make her own costume choices from that point on. The one image shows her with Ray Milland, who plays her husband as he discovers that his plan has gone wrong. The second image is between Kelly, Milland, Robert Cummings who plays her lover, and thus the reason for the husband's jealousy and John Williams as the inspector who unravels the case. The photos are coded 810-17 and 804-838. Filmed for 3-D, though released only for a short while in that version. There is a small tear at the right side top border, ABOUT FINE.
