SUSPENSE ACCOUNT: THE FILMS OF ALFRED HITCHCOCK
Farley Granger Double Feature!
STRANGERS ON A TRAIN / ROPE

Our Alfred Hitchcock retrospective opens with a tribute to the late actor Farley Granger (1925 - 2011), featuring films the two artists collaborated on.

STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
1951, Warner Bros., 101 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

A chance encounter between tennis champion Guy (Farley Granger) and psychopath Bruno (Robert Walker) on a train triggers an unstoppable race toward double murder. Hitchcock’s classic thriller is a finely-tuned engine of suspense, taking barely a breath as it steams through a spine-tingling story of fate, coincidence, guilt and psychopathology - favorite themes of noir writer Patricia Highsmith, whose novel was adapted by the great Raymond Chandler. With Ruth Roman.


ROPE
1948, Universal, 80 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

This startling Alfred Hitchcock film was doubly daring for 1948: First, it risked depicting the Leopold & Loeb-like tale of homosexual lovers committing murder solely for the thrill. If that wasn’t enough, it told the tale in a series of long, 10-minute takes, unlike anything any director had previously attempted. Having passed over the heads of most audiences when originally released, the film is a revelation by today’s standards. With James Stewart, Farley Granger and John Dall (GUN CRAZY).
