How Alfred Hitchcock made “Rope” With Only 10 Cuts

Vashi Nedomansky has put together a video examining Alfred Hitchock’s movie Rope (1948), which starred Jimmy Stewart. Chimesfreedom earlier explored the real-life crime that inspired the film, but Nedomansky focuses on an interesting technical aspect of the movie. While watching the movie, one senses there are no edits or cuts. But Nedomansky illustrates how there are actually ten cuts, some less obvious than others.

If you have never seen the film, note that the following video contains spoilers. If you have seen Rope, or do not mind the spoilers, check out How Alfred Hitchcock hid 10 Edits in Rope.
