Hitchcock: The Perfect Crime
(NR) USA – 1 hr 20 min
1948 · d. Alfred Hitchcock
Starring James Stewart, John Dall, Farley Granger
Bent on committing an “artistic crime,” two young men murder a peer and invite his loved ones to a dinner in his honor—served atop the trunk containing his body! Their former teacher (James Stewart) soon realizes that this is no ordinary social gathering. Filmed to appear like a single continuous shot, Rope is one of Hitchcock’s boldest—and most suspenseful—experiments.
The Thursday, July 6, screening will be presented in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, taught by Amy Corbin, Ph.D. On this date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
