Pic of the Day: French poster for Hitchcock’s Dial M for Murder (1954)

French poster for Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder

The French release poster for Alfred Hitchcock’s Dial M for Murder (1954) bears no mention of the film’s 3D origins. Originally shot as a “deepie,” after a brief preview run in 3D the film’s release was shifted to “flat.”

Below are Hitchcock’s thoughts on the 3D process, from an issue of Prevue magazine. This image comes from 3D Film Archive, which offers an extensive history of the film’s production and release.
