Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

I'd seen this movie years ago and was thrilled to see it become available on Amazon. The cast is an amazing line up of some very famous faces. It's been great fun being able to watch it again. My order went very smoothly, the item arrived earlier than estimated and was in excellent condition.

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.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 23 2014
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.

Do yourself a favor and pour a nice glass of iced tea, put your feet up, and enjoy "The Trouble With Harry" on a lazy Saturday afternoon prior to going out to enjoy the centerpiece activity of your Saturday night. In other words, if you don't expect too much from this film, you'll find it enjoyable and diverting. I liked the gorgeous scenery and wonderful photography; the offbeat humor; and the none-too-realistic but amusing characters (many of whom reminded me of the done-with-a-straight-face neurotics that began popping up in Monty Python sketches a decade and a half later). The movie isn't a showstopper (it doesn't have those three or four stare-in-awe directorial moments that mostly every other Hitchcock film offers) but "The Trouble With Harry" is beautiful to look at, laced with several chuckles, and, if not directed in the master's usually gripping style, is certainly presented with supreme polish and artistry.

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.

Along with ROPE, VERTIGO and the 1956 THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY (TTWH) was unavailable for public viewing for many years. Far less famous than any of these films, TTWH is often thought of as a "minor" Hitchcock - light, amusing, but lacking the formal adventurousness of "classic" Hitchcock like PSYCHO or VERTIGO. It is true that TTWH is essentially a one-joke comedy without any great "set-pieces," but it is perhaps Hitchcock's purest meditation on the cycle of death and rebirth, and the place of human relationships within the realm of Nature. Many reviewers have commented on Robert Burks' lush cinematography of Vermont in October. Yes, it is "beautiful" to human eyes, but the beauty of fall is but the gorgeous face of death, life's final protest before winter's inexorable advance. The Vermont setting is crucial to the success of TTWH. The autumn landscape is as much a character in the film as any of the actors, who (very unusually in Hitchcock) are photographed in carefully composed group shots without close-ups. More so than in any other Hitchcock film, the characters share equal screen space with the landscape. This suggests the interdependence of humans and the earth, and avoids the fetishistic quality of much Hollywood cinema, which abstracts the human subject from his or her environment. All of the major characters in TTWH begin by being unfamiliar with one another, despite their residence in what is obviously a tiny village, and end by becoming deeply (and joyfully) enmeshed in each other's lives. Oddly, death is what brings these people closer to one another and sparks new love in their hearts. Harry himself is something of a "MacGuffin.Read more ›
