Alfred Hitchcock retrospective: Rope

Just before hosting a dinner party, Philip Morgan (Farley Granger) and Brandon Shaw (John Dall) strangle a mutual friend to death with a piece of rope, purely as a Nietzsche-inspired philosophical exercise. Hiding the body in a chest upon which they then arrange a buffet dinner, the pair welcome their guests, including the victim's oblivious fiancée (Joan Chandler) and the college professor (James Stewart) whose lectures inadvertently inspired the killing.

"Rope" is the first of Hitchcock's Technicolor films and is notable for taking place in real time and being edited so as to appear as a single continuous shot through the use of long takes.
