Saturday Movie Matinee featuring Alfred Hitchcock's ROPE (1948)


February 9, 2013

Program Locations:

Hitchcock's favorite film is also his rarest, most intriguing, and unprecedented   movie. His first color film and the first film he ever produced, the title is taken from the murder weapon. Loosely based on a true story, two rich young men murder a colleague for the sake of murder and then coolly throw a party around the hidden corpse in this curious intellectual drama.

James Stewart, John Dall, Farley Granger. Universal Pictures; Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Rated PG; 80 minutes; 1948.
