Rope
By Patrick Hamilton, directed by Elmore James. For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and the "fun of the thing," Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak-minded friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate. They place the body in a wooden chest, invite a few acquaintances, and host a dinner party with the chest as the supper table.  Elmore James creates an edgy, American-ized version of this psychological drama brimming with shock and suspense.

Born Yesterday
Ted Pappas directs Garson Kanin's hilarious classic comedy that tells the tale of Billie Dawn's transformation from ditzy showgirl to solid citizen. The makeover begins when her crooked boyfriend, Harry Brock, goes to Washington to buy himself a Senator and decides that Billie is too dumb to mingle with the political smart set. He hires a nerdy journalist to teach her how to fit in, and what transpires is the stuff of Broadway and Hollywood legend.
