Cary Grant is the husband, a dashing ne'er-do-well with a penchant for the high life--and a bank account that's strictly low-lifeStrangers on a train: Guy Haines, a tennis star who hates his wife, is approached on a train by a stranger, Bruno Anthony, who hates his father. Anthony offers a plan: each could kill the other's victim. No motive, no clue would link the two murders save the casual meeting of strangers on a trainI confess: A priest hears a murderer's confession and then becomes the murder suspect himselfDial M for murder: A man devises a plan to murder his wife, not only because he wants her money, but because she is in love with another manThe wrong man: The true story of Manny Balestrero, a musician unjustly accused of armed robbery. Balestrero vehemently protests his innocence but acts thoroughly guilty, leading a host of policemen and witnesses to finger him as the thief.
