Directed by Alfred Hitchcock | 1954

With James Stewart,Grace Kelly,Thelma Ritter,Wendell Corey,Raymond Burr

“Rear Window is perhaps the first of Hitchcock's films to which the term masterpiece can be applied”
—Robin Wood, Hitchcock’s Films Revisited

Laid up with a broken leg, a photographer (Stewart) sweats out the hot summer days, voyeuristically eyeing his Greenwich Village neighbors: the scantily clad dancer, the perpetually blue Miss Lonelyhearts, the squabbling newlyweds-much to the dismay of a wisecracking nurse (Ritter). But what's with hounded-looking Raymond Burr's mysterious night trips? And what exactly happened to his wife? Kelly was never sexier than as Stewart's frou-frou fashion-editor girlfriend intent on proving her mettle. "Hitchcock has nowhere else given us so disturbing a definition of what it is to watch the 'silent film' of other people's lives, whether across a courtyard or up on a screen" (Time Out London).
