Two young men strangle their classmate, hide his body, and invite his friends and family to a dinner party.
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Sir Cedric Hardwicke
Price: £7, £6 concessions, £5 SJT+ cardholders
To celebrate our staging of The 39 Steps, we are screening four classic Hitchcock films.
Just before hosting a dinner party, Philip Morgan (Farley Granger) and Brandon Shaw (John Dall) strangle a mutual friend to death with a piece of rope, purely as a Nietzsche-inspired philosophical exercise. Hiding the body in a chest upon which they then arrange a buffet dinner, the pair welcome their guests, including the victim's oblivious fiancée (Joan Chandler) and the college professor (James Stewart) whose lectures inadvertently inspired the killing.
