Rope

One of Hitchcock's most daring experiments in suspense and long takes. Farley Granger and John Dall are the two friends who strangle a classmate for intellectual thrills and then proceed to invite his family and mutual friends to dinner - with the body stuffed inside the trunk they use for a buffet table. James Stewart is the teacher who suspects his students. Inspired by the Leopold-Loeb case.
