    Description

    Rope (Warner Brothers, R-1983). One Sheet (27" X 41"). "We killed for the sake of danger and for the sake of killing." Alfred Hitchcock's noble failure of an experiment still manages to pack a few punches. The film, shot in what appears to be one continuous take, proves the value of a good editor. In roles originally meant for Cary Grant and Montgomery Clift, Jimmy Stewart and John Dall spar about the meaning of Nietzsche's man and superman. Unaware that Dall and Farley Granger have murdered a friend to prove their superiority, James Stewart has to sift through the clues and hints that they drop in order to expose the killers. This is one of Hitchcock's five lost films that were re-released in 1983. Folded 1983 re-issue one sheet. Minor fold wear and wrinkling. Nice image. Very Fine-.
