80 minutes — AA, 35mm, Alfred Hitchcock, United States, 1948
As an intellectual exercise, two young men murder a classmate. Then, with the body still in their apartment, they throw a dinner party. Unfortunately for them, they invite Jimmy Stewart. The entire story unfolds in a single, seamless shot, but this masterful study in mounting tension is no gimmick.
