Brandon wants excitement and little cares how he gets it. He persuades his weak-minded friend, Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate.
The two invite a few acquaintances, including the dead man’s father, round to a party.
The horror and tension are worked up gradually; thunder growls outside, the guests leave, and we see the reactions of the two murderers, watched closely by the suspecting Rupert Cadell.
Will Rupert Cadell learn the truth, and will Brandon and Granillo break down under the strain and confess their guilt?
You will have to wait until the final curtain descends on this classic of the thriller genre to learn the truth.
Rope, first produced and published in 1929, was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1948 and remains to this day one of the classics of the thriller genre.
