Product Description

Le problème avec Harry, c'est qu'il est mort. Tel un cartoon, Mais qui a tué Harry ? présente un large panel de personnages, soit drôles, soit agaçants, qui ont la particularité commune de complètement se désintéresser du pauvre cadavre qu'ils rencontrent à tour de rôle. Le mort, Harry, une fois identifié, devient la cause de multiples stratagèmes destinés à le cacher. Il est d'abord enterré puis déterré, enterré à nouveau… Rarement l'humour grinçant d'Alfred Hitchcock n'a pu s'exprimer autant que dans Mais qui a tué Harry ?, une de ses vraies comédies qu'il citait souvent comme étant un de ses films préférés. D'autre part, la joyeuse partition de Bernard Herrmann complète parfaitement l'humour noir de cette étrange histoire, et le charme affiché par la débutante Shirley McLaine rompt avec les héroïnes "glacées" présentes dans les autres films d'Hitchcock. --Christophe Gagnot --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
A young kid Arnie Rogers (Jerry Mathers, Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver in the Leave it to Beaver series) is playing in a field and some shots are fired. Soon Arnie comes upon a body. We are now prepared for suspense and mystery.

Turns out pretty formula; in the sense that everybody and nobody could have done it. At first it seems slow and weird as no one acts normal even for a movie character. They are all slow, nonchalant, and distracted. Harry gets dragged around and buried in controversy.

Soon you can really get wrapped up in the story and anticipate the end. The movie never picks up speed; you just have more loose ends to follow. No one cares who bumped Harry off or if they did as long as it does not affect his or her future.

The draw to this movie now days and maybe then is the list of actors and the introduction of Shirley MacLaine. Edmund Gwenn looks pretty old here and is remembered also for his performance in "Outward Bound" (1930) 25 years earlier. Being directed by Alfred Hitchcock, there is still that Hitchcock feel. So sit back and enjoy it for what it is.

The Trouble with Harry is just good. It's a simple story with a straightforward and unaffected dark humour. The actors all hold their own and work well together. It's aesthetically pleasing and the score by Bernard Herrmann hits exactly the right note. Like a fine red autumn apple it's tasty and satisfying.

Format: DVD
In a way, Alfred Hitchcock making a dark comedy makes perfect sense -- his movies have dead bodies AND clever dialogue. Why not make a movie about both of them?

To be fair, "The Trouble With Harry" is nowhere near Hitchcock's best work, mainly because the central story is very repetitive. But it's kept aloft with Hitchcock's clever dialogue ("Marriage is a good way to spend the winter") and a cast of likably quirky characters who end up spending a few days trying to hide/excavate a dead body. How did you spend YOUR weekend?

Kindly old Captain Wiles (Edmund Gwenn) is out hunting rabbits when he finds the body of a dead man, whom he assumes he killed by accident. Free-spirited artist Sam Marlowe (John Forsythe) comes across Wiles dragging the corpse through the woods, and offers to help him bury the corpse -- at least, once they find out what the connection to the perky widow Jennifer Rogers (Shirley MacLaine) is.

However, the whole scenario gets even more muddled when both Mrs. Rogers and kindly Miss Gravely (Mildred Natwick) claim to have accidentally killed the corpse (aka, Harry). The entire situation becomes even more problematic as they try to figure out what to do with Harry, especially with the suspicious Deputy Sheriff Wiggs (Royal Dano) breathing down their necks.

The trouble with "Trouble" is simple: most of the movie consists of the same few jokes, repeated for different people. People keep claiming they killed Harry accidentally, the body is dug up, the body is reburied, and everybody (except Sam) worries about what to do. That's most of the middle of the movie, summed up in a single sentence.

So it's a testament to Alfred Hitchcock's skill that this relatively lightweight movie is still pretty diverting.

Format: DVD
In the classic "Twilight Zone" episode "Five Characters in Search of an Exit," viewers are introduced to just that: a ballerina, an Army officer, a clown, a tramp, and a bagpipe player seeking to escape from a cylindrical prison. At the end of the show, it is revealed that they are actually dolls that want "out"" from their round "home".
While the four major characters in "The Trouble with Harry" are not dolls, they are definitely trying to "escape" from a prison of sorts, a prison of guilt over Harry's death of which they feel responsible. In a series of coincidences/mishaps stars Edmund Gwenn (a former ship captain), John Forsythe (a painter), Shirley MacLaine (single parent), and Mildred Natwick (a spinster) either "kill", "bury", or "resurrect" the dearly departed. But, Harry proves to be an illusive corpse.
None of the eccentric characters shows much remorse because Harry wasn't a very likeable person; in fact, there is a lot of witty repartee between them as they discuss that to do with him.
While this is far from one of "The Master's" best, it benefits from delightfully droll performances, a light-hearted Bernard Herrmann score, and post card-like images of New England, the film's setting.
Rounding out the cast are a pre-"Beaver" Jerry Mathers as MacLaine's son, Mildred Dunnock as a local shopkeeper, and Royal Dano as the shopkeeper's police deputy son.
Dano had a long career as a character actor and can be heard as the voice of Abraham Lincoln at the Disney theme parks' "Hall of Presidents".

By T. Lobascio on Oct. 8 2002
Format: DVD
Director Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 film, THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY, is a dark mystery/comedy, that is time well spent. When a corpse suddenly appears, the residents of a small New England town are left to wonder how the victim died. After several failed attemps to bury the corpse, the townspeople are shocked to learn the true "Trouble" with Harry. Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, a young Jerry Mathers, and Shirley MacLaine (in her first film) all dive right into their roles. Thanks to its dark sense of humor and with Hitcock at the helm, the film remains good for a chuckle or two. Athough, I have to admit, that the movie is not my favorite among Hitchcock films, it still has plenty to like.
The DVD has a 30 minute-plus retrospective documentary, just like many other Hitchcock films on disc. As a follower of the director, I find these documentaries informative and well produced by Laurent Bouzereau. It also includes a photo gallery, with both production and publcity photgraghs. Rounding out the extras on the DVD are cast and crew information, production notes, and the vintage theatrical trailer. Recommended
