Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Before being made into the classic film, Dial 'M' for Murder was a thrilling stageplay by Frederick Knott, who repeated his success with Wait until Dark a decade later. Writings, photographs, and letters from Knott's papers combine with sketches, notes, and production stills from plays and movies to create a picture of the work of this master of suspense.
