  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Trouble With Harry 9176.jpg

Over the years, Alfred Hitchcock gave the world such thrillers as Rebecca, Psycho and The Birds. He also gave us a few comedies, such as this one, a 1955 adaptation of Jack Trevor Story's novel. Originally the film was a box office failure but it has since become well regarded.

The residents of a small Vermont town are faced with the appearance of one Harry Worp. The trouble with Harry is that he's dead. Four people in particular are concerned with what to do with him: Captain Albert Wiles (Edmund Gwenn), who thinks he shot Harry on accident while hunting; Jennifer Rogers (Shirley MacLaine, in her film debut), who was his wife; Ivy Gravely (Mildred Natwick), who hit Harry in self-defense after he attacked her; and Sam Marlowe (John Forsythe), who never actually met Harry, but is interested in Jennifer. The rest of the movie is spent trying to figure out why he's dead, and more importantly, what to do with the body.
