When American writer Mark Halliday visits the very married Margot Wendice in London, he unknowingly sets off a chain of blackmail and murder. After sensing Margot's affections for Halliday, her husband, Tony Wendice, fears divorce and disinheritance, and plots her death. Knowing former school chum Captain Lesgate is involved in illegal activities, Tony blackmails him into conspiring to kill Margot. When she kills Lesgate in self-defense, Tony implicates her as being guilty of premeditated murder. Halliday must out-stratagize Tony to save Margot's live.




  • No 3D???? and hacked!!!

    By outer limits fan
    The 3 D version (the most famous version) of this film is not offered here as well as awful cropping to make it fill your TV screen (ugh!) I don't know why some hack at the film distribution company thinks they know better than Alfred Hitchcock!!! I wish ITunes would "draw the line" and only offer movies as their makers intended.
  • One of the earlier Best!!

    By Derrick and Jim
    Easily one of the earlier best thriller movies you will see. Without the technology that we have today it’s interesting to see how actors actually had to “act” to keep the audiences entertained!!
  • Love this movie, but it has been cropped

    By Crewzcontrol
    First off,I love this movie and all the actors. And it's a nice little parlor room mystery, cleverly developed. However, my rating is lowered due to the iTunes presentation of the film: It has been cropped from the original aspect ratio. The top and bottom of the picture have been clipped to create a widescreen version. I'd rather see the whole picture.
  • Love it! Especially that brilliant "one mistake"....

    By pinkbrick
    Absolutely love this one! Especiallythat brilliantly thought out "one mistake the killer always makes"! Now I've got to buy it -the acting and storyline is so enjoyable to watch!
  • Predictable

    By Meowserie4
    Predictable movie with a predictable ending. Did you really think Grace Kelly would spend the rest of her life in jail ???
  • No Debate

    If you’re pondering whether to watch it or not… Watch it. Simply no debate about it.

  • Not Hitchcock's best but still great

    By BrentSD
    Another classic movie from the greatest director of all time. However, this is no Rear Window or North by Northwest but I would still watch this before any modern day film. LIke Rear Window this whole film takes place in a single apartment. However, I did find myself wondering when it was over where was the kitchen? You see the bed room then the great room that housed the living room and the office but I didn't see a kitchen anywhere. I just might have missed it because I was wondering if Wendice was going to get caught the whole time. Well I wont give it away for those of you who what to find out and for those of you still thinking about it, just give it a chance you will enjoy it.
