Event Description:

The Trouble with Harry is a 1955 black comedy directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The screenplay was based on the 1949 novel by Jack Trevor Story. The quirky residents of the small hamlet of Highwater, Vermont, are faced with the freshly dead body of Harry Worp (Philip Truex), which has inconveniently appeared on the hillside above the town. The problem of who the person is, who was responsible for his sudden death, and what should be done with the body is "the trouble with Harry." The film stars Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, Mildred Natwick, Jerry Mathers and Shirley MacLaine in her film debut.
