What a week it’s been for Hitchcockians! First we had yesterday’s big announcement from Universal on that 15-film boxed set, and today Warner Home Video has announced Dial M for Murder will be released in Blu-ray 3D October 9. One of the first movies to be released in 3D, this 1954 suspense classic stars the beautiful Grace Kelly, Ray Milland (slightly less beautiful), and Robert Cummings in the tale of a man who schemes to murder his wife. Not nice. Suggested list price is $35.99. Warner also announced that Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train will be coming to Blu-ray on the same date. “This is not a conversion from 2D to 3D, but an original work, with a big tip of the cap to MPI (Warner’s Motion Pitcure Imaging division), that illustrates just how good 3D can be,” said Jeff Baker, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Warner’s theatrical catalog. “The Warner library has the largest number of classic 3D titles (15) of any studio and over the years we’ve been looking to release them, but not until now has the technology been perfected to the point we can do that. We’re hoping Dial M for Murder is the first of several classic 3D films to be released, with the long-awaited, much requested “House of Wax” expected next.”
