The Trouble with Harry

One of Hitchcock’s funniest black comedies (and his first collaboration with Bernard Herrmann), The Trouble with Harry explores the pesky problem of what to do with a dead body that refuses to stay buried. The additional trouble with Harry is that no one really knows how he died or who may have killed him. Starring John Forsythe, Shirley MacLaine, and a host of outstanding character actors (including Jerry Mathers and Edmund Gwenn), the story is beautifully filmed in New England in the autumn. Noted at the time for its macabre humor and frank dialogue, the film was one of Hitchcock’s favorites, and perfectly demonstrates his ability to blend the elements of mystery, comedy, and thriller into one film.
