Hitchcock used film to explore his own neuroses and phobias, in the process revealing the psychological complexities we all share.
In this clever psychological thriller, a tennis pro has a theoretical conversation with a stranger about how two men could get away with the perfect murder by killing the other's wife. He doesn't realize that his psychotic new acquaintance takes their talk literally.
