Dial M for Murder

Here I am again on a major writing spree! I have been wringing a few “memory reviews” of films a saw before and simply rembered from past viewings. This film is different however. I turned it on just as it started and stayed glue to the small screen of my bachelor pad to take it all in. This is one of those films you must watch in their entirety. I am sweating profusely now and I don’t think that is from taking the trash out. This movie is a dozzy. It has plenty of twists and turns and keeps you guessing till the end. The most ironic part about that last statement is you know the entire story from the start. You know whom or who really did it, which covered it up and even all the details. Grace Kelly stars in this film and is both stunning and captivating. She was definitly Alfred Hitchcok’s favorite leading lady. Who can blame him she is as beatiful as her name. She has great acting abilty and can pull of any role. This role is one for the ages. The film is loved by even I, who was born nearly twenty years after the film came out. Do not go to the fride for a snack during this 105 minute spellbinder. It is a fan pleaser for generations to come just as surley as it captivated me. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
