Three Cases of Murder is a 1955 British drama film comprising three stories. Though the stories are separate and unrelated, Alan Badel appears in all three.

Orson Welles received top billing in the film, but he in fact appears for only in the final story. According to Patrick Macnee, who had a supporting role in the third story, Welles began making suggestions to the director throughout the first day of filming, and by the third day he had taken over the direction of the entire segment.[1] The first and third stories are supernatural, and all three are linked and prefaced by an introduction in which Eamonn Andrews speaks to camera.

In the first story a museum worker enters one of the pictures in a gallery. In the second, two friends fall in love with the same woman before she is murdered by one of them. In the third, a politician seeks revenge on a political opponent by entering his dreams.

Each story was directed by a different director, George More O'Ferrall, Wendy Toye and David Eady.[2]
