The history of the Rope (film):
Rope is a 1948 American psychological crime thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, based
on the 1929 play of the same name by Patrick Hamilton. The film was produced by Hitchcock
and Sidney Bernstein as the first of their Transatlantic Pictures productions. Starring James
Stewart, John Dall and Farley Granger, this is the first of Hitchcock›s Technicolor films,[6] and
is notable for taking place in real time and being edited so as to appear as a single continuous
shot through the use of long takes. The original play was said to be inspired by the real-life
murder of -14year-old Bobby Franks in 1924 by University of Chicago students Nathan Leopold
and Richard Loeb.
