Trouble With Harry (1955)
Edmund Gwenn (Miracle On 34th Street, Them) is the first to find the body of Harry. Naturally he thinks he killed poor Harry when he sees the hole in his forehead. After all he was recklessly shooting his rifle off in the woods. Naturally he decides to bury the body before he is caught. The only problem is the woods are very crowded on this particular day. Harry's wife and stepson find him sitting there but they seem almost happy. A bum steals the shoes off of Harry's dead feet. Another man trips over the body and many others cross Harry's path and the best part is that every one of them have their own reason for wanting to keep it a secret.
Trouble With Harry has a nice mix of laughs and mystery. Hitchcock fans shouldn't be disappointed. The man proves his talent yet again on a less traveled path.
