The Trouble With Harry (1955)



Reviews and Comments

"What seems to be the trouble, Captain?"

Alfred Hitchcock's painfully underrated black comedy The Trouble With Harry is a deliciously morbid film sure to amuse anyone with a slightly twisted or unorthodox sense of humor (such as Alfred Hitchcock's own). A dead body is found lying in the woods; what to do with him becomes the bothersome dilemma for a small group of the local residents. It was shot in the rich color of Vermont's autumn, the perfect compliment to its darker subject matter. Hitchcock has stated that the line quoted above is his favorite line from all his films.
