Summary Saboteur : Barry Kane (Robert Cummings) is a Los Angeles aircraft factory worker who witnesses a Nazi agent firebombing his plant. However, it is Barry who is accused of the fiery sabotage, and to clear his name he sets off on a desperate, action-packed cross-country chase that takes him from Boulder Dam to New York's Radio City Music Hall to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Hitchcock's first film with an all-American cast moves with breakneck speed toward its final heart-pounding confrontation, and remains a suspense classic.
Shadow of a doubt : Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten) is a seemingly charming man visiting his relatives in their small and peaceful hometown. But when his namesake niece, "Young Charlie" (Teresa Wright) suspects that he may in fact be the psychopathic Merry Widow killer, Uncle Charlie must plot the death of his favorite relation in order to remain one step ahead of the law in this murderous game of cat-and-mouse.
Rope : Two thrill-seeking friends strangle a classmate and then hold a party for their victim's family and friends, serving refreshments on a buffet table fashioned from a trunk containing the lifeless body. When dinner conversation revolves around talk of "the perfect murder," their former teacher becomes increasingly suspicious that his proteges have turned his intellectual theories into brutal reality.
Rear window : It only takes one witness to spoil the perfect crime in one of the most acclaimed suspense films of all time. Professional photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries, becomes obsessed with watching the private dramas of his neighbors while confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg. When he suspects that a saleman may have murdered his nagging, invalid wife, Jeffries enlists the help of his stunning socialite girlfriend to investigate the suspicious chain of events.
