Directed by Alfred Hitchcock • 1955 • United States
Starring Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, Shirley MacLaine
Alfred Hitchcock took a rare and delightful detour into comedy with this darkly humorous tale of a pesky corpse that becomes a big problem for a quiet Vermont village. A young Shirley MacLaine makes her film debut as one of several eccentric townspeople who keep burying the body, only to find it resurfacing again and again. A witty lark of a film, THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY finds the legendary director at his lightest and most mischievous.
