In Dial M for Murder, Tony Wendice has married his wife Margot for her money and plans to murder her for the same reason. He blackmails a scoundrel into strangling her and arranges a brilliant alibi for himself. Following unforeseen events, the story culminates into almost unbearable suspense, guaranteed to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. Dial M for Murder had a highly successful run on Broadway and the road.
