On second viewing, I believe I was too kind. The innuendo remains amusing, but the whole things is pretty flat, and John Forsythe remains one of the least charismatic actors in golden age Hollywood. 2/5
A strange little film. Often flat, not always well calibrated--but it has a certain charm to it, and amusing sexual innuendo. 3/5
paraphrasing hitch here: like drops of blood floating on a blue stream in the midst of the woods. Edmund Gwenn is the standout in this atypical Hitchcock film...atypical because: 1. it's a comedy, granted a comedy centered around a dead body. 2. it works so well because of, in part, its somewhat genteel nature....
It helps that I was expecting a disaster because I really enjoyed this. The colors are stunningly beautiful and it may be the most optimistic film Hitchcock made.
Good god what a boring waste of time; this is Hitchcock, really? Bloody hell. The man had a talent for instilling black humor into certain moments of his films, but to attempt an entire 99 minute film was a horrible idea.
More than meets the eye. Love all the thinly-disguised dirty talk that made it right past the censors.
A falta de ver buena parte de su filmografía, creo que es la única película de Hitchcock que verdaderamente me ha decepcionado. Su sentido del humor se me hizo insatisfactorio y carece de suspenso y tensión. Por lo menos sale una encantadora y bonita Shirley Mac Laine (fue su primera película)
The Trouble With Harry is... he's dead. But who killed him? Several inhabitants of an autumnal New England town believe they are responsible for his demise. This quirky black comedy has to be one of Hitchcock's lightest and most playful movies and features Shirley MacLaine in her debut performance, showing that her kooky persona was there from the start. Hitch's first collaboration with composer Bernard Herrmann.....
I remember seeing this as a kid during a Hitchcock marathon back when AMC was awesome and still played CLASSICS and was commercial free (thank god for Turner Classic Movies) but anyway I loved this so much! I remember thinking then "Hitchcock did this?! haha hilarious story. Love it.
