In one of Alfred Hitchcock's more darkly subversive thrillers, John Dall and Farley Granger are believably creepy as the well-to-do intellectuals who murder an acquaintance just to prove they can get away with it. All of the action takes place in an apartment, in what appears to be a continuous scene. James Stewart stars as the murderers' suspicious professor, who is depicted on this original release Japanese B2 poster, along with the murder weapon and Hitchcock clutching his own neck!
