Описание: Истерически смешная черная комедия о беспокойном... трупе, который создает множество умопомрачительных проблем для мирных соседей в Новой Англии. Да, человека убили, соседям это не нравится. Хичкоку удается сделать это не свойственной для него, блистательной комедией. Гуэнн хороша как всегда. Дебют в кино Шерли МакЛейн. Картина, снятая на фоне живописных осенних пейзажей, поставлена по роману Джека Тревора Стори. Прекрасная музыка Бернарда Херрманна. (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: This Alfred Hitchcock movie went unnoticed when it was released in the USA in 1955. However, it was highly successful in France. Then Hitchcock's talent was taken seriously. Although, I'm French, I don't regard this movie as one of his best movies. I'd rather rank it among his minor works. Hitchcock obviously tried his hand at black humor but according to me, the result doesn't work and it's hardly convincing. The black humor is very laborious and often badly exploited. Moreover, I honestly think that the characters are dumb: they try to persuade themselves that they are Harry's murderer but they know they aren't. "The trouble with Harry" is also a film that drags on and is terribly talkative. But nevertheless it's worth for its excellent photography, its gorgeous Maine landscapes and Bernard Herrmann's imposing music.
But it's also supposed to be a black comedy but in the long run, it isn't funny at all.
