"It's his most nerve-stretching thriller!"
"Nothing ever held you like Alfred Hitchcock's Rope."
"It Begins With a Shriek... It Ends With a Shot!"
Two brilliant young aesthetes, Brandon Shaw (Dall) and Phillip Morgan (Granger), perpetrate murder: they strangle to death a former classmate, David Kentley (Dick Hogan), in their apartment. They commit the crime as an intellectual exercise; they want to prove their superiority by committing the "perfect murder".After hiding the body in a large antique wooden chest, Brandon and Phillip host a dinner party at the apartment which has a panoramic view of Manhattan's skyline. The guests, unaware of what has happened, include the victim's father Mr. Kentley (Cedric Hardwicke) and aunt Mrs. Atwater (Constance Collier); his mother is not able to attend. Also there is his fiancee, Janet Walker (Joan Chandler) and her former lover Kenneth Lawrence (Douglas Dick), who was once David's close friend.
