About This Book

Offers both a production history and a close analysis, with a chapter for each of the film's eleven shots. The first book-length study in English of Alfred Hitchcock's Rope (1948), Perpetual Movement offers both a production history that draws extensively upon little-known archival materials, including set drawings and drafts of the screenplay, and a close examination of the film in which Neil Badmington analyzes each of Rope 's eleven shots. Writing in an accessible and engaging style, Badmington explores the film's treatment of space, sound, editing, sexuality, source material, design, intertexuality, narrative, and music. He looks at Hitchcock's struggle with censorship while planning, shooting, and distributing the film. Perpetual Movement also addresses Rope 's reception and legacy, explaining why the film's unusual qualities provide such lasting appeal for viewers. Neil Badmington is Professor of English Literature at Cardiff University. He is the author of Hitchcock's Magic, The Afterlives of Roland Barthes, and Alien Chic.
