Summary
Two friends strangle a college classmate and then proceed to invite his family and friends to dinner after they stuff the body inside a trunk to be used for the dining table. One of the guests, their teacher, suspects foul play. Based on the real-life Leopold-Loeb murder, Hitchcock's study of total mise-en-scene construction was shot entirely on a single sound stage
