The Trouble with Harry (1955)
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: John Forsythe, Edmund Gwenn, Shirley MacClaine, Mildred Natwick, etc.
7/10

I think most idiots would give this between a 5-7, so it’s not something I’d strongly recommend; it’s worth watching it plays on TV. I knew very little about the film before seeing it, and that made the experience more enjoyable.

**
The film is about a dead body that a couple of people in a small town work to get rid of.

I was delighted when I realized this would be a comedy. I really liked John Forsythe and Edmund Gwenn in this. The dialogue works when it’s read in a relatively straight forward fashion, and these did a good job of making it work. Not a great film, but a pretty entertaining one. It’s the only comedy I’ve seen by Hitchcock.
