I just saw Dial M for Murder
for the first time in the last year & loved the intricacy of it and Ray Milland
's performance in particular.
It's great to see someone who's fond of The Trouble With Harry
too. I love the two Mildred
), Edmund Gwenn
, and especially the New England countryside & the Bernard Herrmann
score in this movie. Though I'm not keen on Shirley MacLaine
's cute style, she was okay here, and John Forsythe
should've had more of a chance to do light comedy in movies. I also like Royal Dano
& Parker Fennelly
very much. Most people don't remember the seemingly dour Fennelly
at all, though thanks to a local radio station that repeated old Allen's Alley
shows in my town as a kid, I knew him well as a member of that illustrious troupe. (He also sold Pepperidge Farm
cookies from a wagon in tv commercials, using all his deadpan charm, I believe).
Mr. Parker Fennelly. He was a tall drink of water, ayah.
