another rope trick

Rope by Alfred Hitchcock – what a whopping pile of lights and filters to replicate a simple room!

Toronto. In a recent post, I noted the Hitchcock movie “Rope” and why it was significant.

In this article from the November, 1948 issue of Popular Photography, Alfred Hitchcock himself wrote the compelling story about making “Rope”. The story and photos begin on page 48 of that issue with the article called, “My Most Exciting Picture“.

Have a read and see just how remarkable this thriller was 70 plus years ago. And be sure to thank my good friend George Dunbar when you see him for telling me about this story and sending the link so we could all enjoy Mr Hitchcock’s writing. Such an amazing director. Did you spot Hitchcock cameos in many of his movies? He is usually there somewhere.
