In 1948 Alfred Hitchcock, long cinematically memorialized as an editing technique pioneer, completed his crime and suspense-driven and infamously homoerotic tale "Rope," based on the 1928 play.

The film, while not necessarily narratively iconic in the same way that Hitchcock's other films were, was trumpeted as triumphantly experimental in that it featured edit-free, real time shots. Vashi Nedomansky has put together a video of the film's 10 isolated edits  that effectively showcase the notorious director's masterful technique of hiding those edits and keeping the action going onscreen.
