Granted I watched it in 2D, but I watched my copy last week and was fairly pleased with the PQ. I don't notice ringing (possibly a product of watching on only a 32" screen), and some shots are far worse than a lot of the movie, but I actually thought it looked good in much more of the movie than not.

I've heard passive 3D sets work best when viewing Dial M. There's some crosstalk issues via active 3D sets.

Nope. Works fine on just as many active 3d sets as passive sets.


On another note TCM SHOP has dropped the price to 19.99. There are also some discounts available at least for some.

I watched this in 3D today, and I have to say, this is better 3D than most of the 3D movies I've seen in the past few years. Hitchcock was always meticulous about his blocking, staging, camera placement, and editing, which is the kind of mentality that is needed for 3D filmmaking. I don't know that the 3D was integral to the film, or that it even added that much emotionally or storywise, but it was rather well done.

The only time I noticed ringing in the picture was in the shots right before or after an optical (a fade to black or a dissolve), which would have been a generation further from the negative than the rest of the shots. Otherwise it looked fine.

The movie itself wasn't great, but it was entertaining. I think Vertigo or Psycho would have been better Hitchcock films for 3D, but perhaps the 3D technology of the time made shooting a film with more locations than they used in Dial M for Murder more difficult.

Hitchcock said that the reason he thought this film was a good candidate for 3D was the moment when Grace Kelly
[Show spoiler]reaches for the scissors as she gets strangled as if she was begging the audience to help her and hand them to her.


But you are right, Hitchcock famously hated going on location and would have been even more reluctant to take a bulky 3D camera off studio premises, so he chose a film which almost entirely takes place on one set. By the time he shot Dial M for Murder the 50s 3D fad was already on the wane and the film mostly got released in 2D. Later films like Vertigo and Psycho would never have been considered to be shot in the format. Until the next 3D wave in the 80s only a handful of independent films were shot in 3D.
