Brandon Shaw and Phillip Morgan, roommates, decide to commit the perfect murder right before a dinner party. Based on the play Rope, which was inspired by the life murder of Bobby Franks. Starring John Dall, Farley Granger, Edith Evanson, James Stewart
This movie was shot in real-time with ten minutes of continuous shots. I loved the way Alfred Hitchcock uses the camera in this film, the long and continuous shots. Although it works in this film I do think it could have been used to its maximized with a different script. Saying that, the script isn’t too bad either it just disappears behind the camera’s tricks. Thinking back, I don’t think the script couldn’t have been shot any other way then the way Hitchcock used. Overall, it’s a great classic film starring James Stewart that is worth the watch.
