The trouble with Harry is that he's dead. The scene is a autumnal Vermont village, where a pre-Leave It to Beaver Jerry Mathers stumbles upon Harry's corpse in the woods. Mathers alerts his mother Shirley MacLaine (making her film debut), who recognizes Harry as her ex-husband. Later on, retired sea captain Edmund Gwenn likewise comes across the moribund Harry.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
One of the absolute funniest movies of the 1950s, not least because it is perhaps the most puckish.
A spirited irreverence about the power of death pervades. Think of this as a relief valve compared to most of Hitchcock's other films.
highly entertaining romantic comedy that still has the Hitchcock touch--a dark comedy using a dead body as the central MacGuffin
Beautifully subtle suspense with a sprinkle of black humor.
Hitchcock does comedy! MacLaine's film debut.
Very underrated black comedy from Hitchcock is really one of his best works.
Despite the artifice, or perhaps partly because of it, the film manages to be enjoyable.
Hitchcock's comedic charms shine in this delightful story about a corpse that just won't stay buried.
