Synopsis

Unravelling in real time, Alfred Hitchcock's one-act suspenser stars John Dall and Farley Granger as arrogant students who kill a college friend for kicks and - to prove they can get away with murder - hold a party with the body hidden in the room. They're smart... but suspicious teacher James Stewart may be smarter. Based on the notorious Leopold-Loeb case, Hitchcock's most daring experiment was shot in long takes of up to ten minutes, inventively pieced together to make one big, compelling and apparently seamless whole.
