This American crime mystery was directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings, and John Williams. It was written by Frederick Knott, who also wrote the play—which premiered on the BBC in 1952, before being performed on stage in London and New York. Hitchcock originally wanted the film to be shown in dual-strip polarized 3-D. However, the film was shown in most cinemas in regular 2-D, owing to the lack of interest in the 3-D process, which was problematic to project.
