YMMV / Dial M for Murder

  • Adaptation Displacement: It was a play first?
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Mark; caring about the woman he loves or trying to get an annoying obstacle out of the way by persuading Tony to take the rap?
  • Magnificent Bastard: Tony. He can come up with new, complex plans in the matter of minutes, and when his whole plot is exposed, he turns out to be one of the all time great Graceful Losers, calmly pouring drinks for everyone who had a hand in finding him out
  • Squick: In what was quite a graphic shot for the time, we get a close-up of the scissors being pushed further into Swann's back as he falls on them.
