Rope is the classic 1948 mystery thriller from the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho, The Birds, North by Northwest, Rear Window), designed to play entirely in one shot and in real, excruciatingly suspenseful, time. Brandon (John Dall) and Philip (Farley Granger) are two old school chums who are holding a party. They tell everyone it's to celebrate Philip's impending first public performance as a pianist. The truth is it's to celebrate their murder of another old school chum, David Kentley (Dick Hogan). Brandon and Philip strangled David for the thrill and as an experiment to prove they are the sort of superior intellects who can pull off the perfect murder. Philip is immediately disturbed by what they've done, while Brandon shrugs it off like it was nothing. To Brandon, the killing was just the first step. He's just as excited about the party. He's invited David's father and mother, David's girlfriend and her ex-boyfriend for some pleasant conversation and food served off the trunk where David's body is hid. He also invited Rupert (James Stewart), who was the prep school house master for Brandon, Philip and David. As the party unfolds, Brandon plays little games with his guests, Philip comes more and more apart at the seams and Rupert begins to suspect the terrible thing that has happened.moreless
