Can’t believe I’m only seeing this now. It’s great. Basically a play. There couldn’t have been more than 15 shots. Ending had me in tears. Shouts out

Rope was the first Alfred Hitchcock/James Stewart collaboration. They would go on to do “Rear Window”, “The Man Who Knew Too Much”, and finally, “Vertigo”. This being the first, and also a kind of experimental film on Hitchcock’s part, it is the weakest of the four. Shot as a play, mainly in one room, and with only a handful of cast members, the concept of how it was done is intriguing even today. Done in roughly a dozen takes, the only times that the camera ever cuts are when it closes in on someone’s back and then angles around to the other side. That’s the tell-tale sign of the only cuts in the entire film.

John Dall’s acting is commendable, in the part of the more ruthless killer, Brandon Shaw. He’s a very cool character, and feels no guilt over the brutal murder he’s just committed. James Stewart, great as he is, seemed a bit out of his element, as intellectual publisher Rupert Cadell. Stewart is always immensely enjoyable, and I have massive respect for his talent. However, he does appear somewhat uncomfortable with his part throughout the film.

Another aspect that detracts from the tension is the opening scene of the murder taking place. After David Kentley is dead, he is placed in the wooden chest and the audience knows he’s dead from scene 1. Had Hitchcock omitted the scene of the murder, the audience would no doubt be wondering “Is there really a body in that chest? Did they really do it? What’s going on here?” And the red herrings in the film would only add to the suspense. As it is, we know from the start who’s dead and who-done-it. That said, it’s a decent movie, and certainly still worth the watch.

The Art of Murder
Alfred Hitchcock broke boundaries in the movie making industry. He overcame the odds to create not just film, but works of art. He could tell a story like no other and it has been copied ever since. Horror, thrillers, crime, and mysteries were his specialties. His unique sense of how a film should look is unparalleled by any other. One of the most creative and interesting to watch has got to be Rope.

Rope is the story of two young men, Brandan and Phillip (John Dall and Farley Granger), who come together to perform the perfect murder. They’re only motive is that they are superior beings like Nietzsche says. So why do they kill they’re friend David? Are they really that much above everyone else? They seem to think so, and they’re old school master Rupert (James Stewart) gave them the idea in the first place. It seems that Brandan and Phillip have taken it too far.

After strangling David with a piece of rope, they must prepare for the party they are throwing. The food is set, David is placed in a chest in the parlor, and the guests will be arriving soon. One more change is needed to really make this a work of art. The food is moved from the dinning room and placed on top of the chest where David is resting in peace. Mrs. Wilson, the maid, doesn’t seem to understand but it is not her job. Now everything is set. All that are needed are their guests, including David’s father!

Their friend Kenneth, David’s girlfriend/Kenneth’s ex-girlfriend Janet, David’s father, Mrs. Atwater, and Rupert all arrive and begin to eat. Phillip is in a daze because of the whole situation before hand. He still hasn’t quite settled down yet and is very uneasy. Branan on the other hand is quite chirpy, stuttering with so much excitement. The party includes some musical accompaniment from Phillip and talk of David’s whereabouts, for he was supposed to be there…alive. He can’t believe that he actually pulled it off. All that needs to happen is for the guests to leave and off to the country-side to dispose of David.

Hitchcock has taken Patrick Hamilton’s play and made it into an absolute masterpiece. Hitchcock had to take out some elements to the characters of Brandan and Phillip, mainly their homosexuality. Originally on stage the two are homosexuals but because of the time in which the movie was made in, it had to be adjusted to suit American standards. Europe already had addressed the issue in movies, but the US hadn’t made it that far yet.

The real standout of this picture has got to be the cinematography. The entire movie is basically filmed in one continuous shot. The camera moves around with the characters over the apartment. It is made to look like you would see it on stage. You see everything going on and hear everything, just focus your attention on the characters that are speaking of moving around. The only time Hitchcock would stop the camera was when a person would walk by it would zoom in on their back for a second of two, just so the whole movie wasn’t filmed non-stop, and made editing very simple. There is only one setting for the whole movie so you know exactly what is going on everywhere at all times. You can feel the suspense thickening as the men’s secret is close to being exposed.

Rope is a perfect film and couldn’t have fallen into better hands than Alfred Hitchcock. His vision to make a movie based on a play surpasses all other attempts at making this conversion. The film runs only 80 minutes but nonetheless is exhilarating from beginning to end. Unfortunately due to the homosexual references, the movie didn’t do as well as it should have, but left its mark in cinema history. Don’t let this one get away!

Give them enough rope…
The plot for Rope is fairly basic: two young men — Brandon (John Dall) and Phillip (Farley Granger) — commit a murder to prove their intellectual superiority (and for the thrill of it), hiding the body in a trunk in their apartment while they throw a dinner party (the dead man’s girlfriend and his father among the guests). Over the course of the evening, the killers’ university tutor, Rupert Cadell (James Stewart), begins to suspect that the men are hiding a terrible secret.

Hitchcock manages to wring a fair amount of tension from this simple set-up, but the real joy of this film is the real-time execution, the director pulling off quite the technical feat by using as few shots as possible, cleverly hiding any edits as the camera stealthily moves around the single apartment location picking out salient details and focusing on key characters. Meanwhile, the view of Manhattan through the panoramic window goes from daylight to dusk to darkness, the effect achieved with an elaborate studio backdrop that consisted of scale buildings, spun-glass clouds and neon lights.

Adapted from Patrick Hamilton’s 1929 play of the same name (which was based on the real-life 1924 Leopold and Loeb murder case), Rope is incredibly grim, and quite daring for 1948, the implied homosexuality of the murderers even seeing the film banned in several American cities on its original release. The movie’s morbidity is still palpable to this day, and its antagonists’ elitist philosophy is truly shocking (particularly so soon after Hitler’s deluded superiority), making this a treat for fans of the macabre even though its stagy nature, slight plot and inevitable outcome prevent it from being a Hitchcock ‘classic’.
