This film was great. Quite a departure from the usual Hitchcock film. I loved it.

Remember this one from film school. It was amusing to see Jerry Mathers of later Beaver fame as a little tyke running around.

Amusing on the surface, but hilarious when you watch it a few times.

An hour and forty minutes of smiles and chuckles. Shirley MacLaine when she was young and a remarkable talent with a long career ahead. John Forsythe, and Edmund Gwenn carry this fun plot along through hilarious burials and impromptu mistaken homicides and funerals to the same cadaver. Excellent movie for the entire family.

Silly comedy. Great fun. Has English subtitles.

There's a reason this one isn't very popular. It's dull as hadies.

Okay, but Hitchcock's others are better.

I simply did not care for it. There's nothing horribly wrong with The Trouble With Harry, but it did not succeed at engrossing me like Hitchcock usually has a knack for. Throughout most of the movie, I kept thinking that the story would be much better as a play. John Forsythe and Shirley MacLaine were great, but the film itself just wasn't. It came no where close to meeting my expectations.

One of my favourite movies! A black comedy, and lots of zippy dialogue (actually, quite daring double entendres).
