The Trouble With Harry (1955) & The Wrong Man (1956)

Ep. 68

Alfred Hitchcock made some of the most well-respected films of all time, Vertigo currently tops the Sight and Sound list of the 100 Greatest Films of All Time but what about some of Hitch's lesser works? Adam and Darrell take a look at two films shot and released during a particularly purple patch for the director. In the midst of films like Rear Window, Vertigo, North By Northwest and Psycho, these two films seem to stand out like criminals in an identity parade. One is a black comedy while the other is based on a true story and leans heavily into film noir. Join us as we talk about Harry and Manny in The Trouble With Harry (1955) and The Wrong Man (1956).
