Synopses & Reviews
Adrift in the grimy pubs of London at the outbreak of World War II, George Harvey Bone is hopelessly infatuated with Netta, a cold, contemptuous, small-time actress. George also suffers from occasional blackouts. During these moments one thing is horribly clear: he must murder Netta.Patrick Hamilton enjoyed a wide readership in Britain and America during the 1930s. His play Rope was made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock and another, Gaslight, was a great success on the stage before being made into a film starring Ingrid Bergman. He died in 1962.
