fig. 1

Directed By: Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: James Stewart, Farley Granger, Joan Chandler, John Dall
Year of release: August 23 1948

Alfred Hitchcock's audacious film 'Rope' is a sort of bridge between the worlds of film making and traditional theatre, giving the viewer a sort of interactive play with the camera serving as the viewers body.

  The umbrella feature when a patient walks in and their plate has broken in a special way with one of the wire bent and broken and jutting out downward piercing his tongue and leaving his mouth in a constant open state. 2. In the demon world 2 people wake up in a dentists office with no recollection of how they got their one of them in a dentists robe and the other in an oversized overcoat and fedora and they instinctively try to understand who they are and where they are until they notice and suspicious umbrella that suits none of their tastes and breaks their own theories of who they where.

3. in an underground dentists surgery a vicious murder has occurred leaving 1 of 2 of the dentistries co-owners dead. The remaining den…
