Event details

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Starring James Stewart, John Dall, Farley Granger

James Stewart stars with Farley Granger and John Dall in a highly-charged thriller inspired by the real-life Leopold-Loeb murder case. Granger and Dall give riveting performances as two friends who strangle a classmate for intellectual thrills, then proceed to throw a party for the victim’s family and friends – with the body stuffed
inside the trunk they use for a buffet table.

As the killers turn the conversation to committing the “perfect murder”, their former teacher (Stewart) becomes increasingly suspicious. Before the night is over, the
professor will discover how brutally his student shave turned his academic theories into chilling reality in Hitchcock’s spellbinding excursion into the macabre.

This screening will be introduced by Rebecca McCallum, host/creator of Talking Hitchcock Podcast.
