The Trouble with Harry

AAA masterpiece by the Master Director Alfred Hitchcock. It is more a delightful comedy than a suspense thriller. It revolves around a corpse in a Vermont village. You are going to like the settings, Glenn, as it is set in beautiful Vermont during the Fall. Shirley Maclaine makes her debut with this film. It has little suspense with a touch of black humour. The film also has John Forsythe (who played the patriarch Blake Carrington in the TV series Dynasty). Jerry Mathers plays Arnie Rogers, son of Shirley Maclaine and the story pivots around him as he is the one who stumbles on the corpse of Harry Worp and is the saviour of the whole plot with his peculiar sense of timing. Superb music by Bernard Herrmann with a tongue-in-cheek control by Hitchcock. The film was completed in 1954 and released in 1955.
