This series features three films in which Hitchcock uses color to further the meaning and ideas of his films. Each screening will be introduced by Janice Simon, Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor of Art History at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Released in 1948, “Rope” is one of Hitchcock’s greatest technical achievements, using innovative recording and editing techniques. Just before hosting a dinner party, Philip Morgan (Farley Granger) and Brandon Shaw (John Dall) strangle a mutual friend to death with a piece of rope as a philosophical exercise. Hiding the body in a chest, upon which they then arrange a buffet dinner, the pair welcome their guests, including the victim’s oblivious fiancée (Joan Chandler) and the college professor (James Stewart) whose lectures inadvertently inspired the killing. 1948, 81 min.
