469 Hitch 20101006 10/6/10 6:01 PM Rope detective thriller murder as an art form neon - “storage” cyclorama is like the Greek chorus - changes throughout party Brandon and the Professor were lovers in the play, excised from the film - how did Hitch sneak this in? Triangles (people standing). Suits are complimentary in color. Deviously clever in terms of censors. Why so few cuts? Perfection of the filmmaking reflects the perfection of the murder. It’s confining, they can’t get out. Narcissism, egocentricity. Perspective - there is none - lack of perspective - like the boys who committed the murder. Paper topics - submit - be creative - pure - simple The Parradine Case based on two English murder cases - husband killers Hitch did it because he wanted out, not because he liked the film detective thriller commercial bust $4.258M - cost as much as Gone With the Wind Casper thinks it’s a master work Rope Under Capricorn Bergman has affair (irl), doesn’t want to come back to USA commercial failure *composition in depth long take (definition?)* end of period Stage Fright 1949 mystery thriller, social satire Pat - Hitch’s daughter just broke even Rebecca to Stage Fright - end of ??? period in America 1940-1949

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
