Why? I know you have an opinion on his films.

We watched Rope (1948) the other night. Very good. Filmed on a single set with a half a dozen characters like a stage play.

...and filmed with a single camera in (almost) one continuous shot. When they were shooting, they had to stop every 10 minutes to change film reels, but those cuts were disguised by things like having the camera pan across a dark surface. There are 4 visible cuts in the film that occurred every 20 minutes. They coincided with when the theatre projectionist would have to change reels.
