Former tennis pro Tony Wendice found out many months ago that his wife Margot was in love with another man, Mark Halliday, an American author of crime novels. After many weeks of planning, Tony sets in motion the perfect plan to kill his wife. The only problem is, as Halliday unknowningly remarks, there's no such thing as a perfect murder, and when something goes wrong, Tony has to quickly formulate another plan to do away with his wife.

(My frustration was ordering this on May 7th and receiving multiple "it's on the way" e-mails only to have the arrival date come & go and it never show up or list as having been delivered. I had to track down the problem and re-order it weeks later on May 24th. If something gets lost in the system, this broken part of the system needs to be re-worked. It would have just hung out there if I hadn't been pro-active. And the associate that I spoke with, although extremely helpful, did state, "Oh yeah, that happens. It's never going to show up.")
The DVD gave a clearer picture and the whole picture! I don't know what you would get out of the 3D experience on the Blu-Ray, as most of the 3D filming that Hitchcock did was by placing furniture in between the camera and the subject, hence the tables, lamps, or bottles that are so often in the forefront of the shot. Zooming the picture wold cut out most of that and lessen the 3D look of the film. From a 2D standpoint, the Blu-Ray is a loser all around. Original film ration modified by cheap zooming, which cuts the clarity and removes part of the film. I can zoom it myself on the TV and achieve the same level of quality and still retain the option of seeing the original film in the original ratio. The audio track is not as nice as the DVD version, which is crisper and clearer. All in all, for true Hitchcock fans and fans of this movie --- stick with the DVD and avoid this poor Blu-Ray release!

In the end it is another well done movie by Alfred Hitchcock. Odds are that if you like Hitchcock you will like this move.
