Released in 1948, Rope remains one of Hitchcock’s greatest technical achievements. Hitchcock shot Rope in real time, controversially using long shots and elaborate camera set-ups to create the illusion of one unbroken take. This was an industry first, paving the way for the use of longer takes in Hollywood while also discovering the tension that a long, sustained shot can ignite.
Rope was Hitchcock’s first film in Technicolor. Winner for Best Feature Film at the 1948 Faro Island Film Festival.
