    Synopsis


    Rear Window
    Laid up with a broken leg, photojournalist L.B. Jeffries (James Stewart) is confined to his tiny, sweltering courtyard apartment. To pass the time between visits from his nurse (Thelma Ritter) and his fashion model girlfriend Lisa (Grace Kelly), the binocular-wielding Jeffries stares through the rear window of his apartment at the goings-on in the other apartments around his courtyard. As he watches his neighbors, he assigns them such roles and character names as "Miss Torso" (Georgine Darcy), a professional dancer with a healthy social life or "Miss Lonelyhearts" (Judith Evelyn), a middle-aged woman who entertains nonexistent gentlemen callers. Of particular interest is seemingly mild-mannered travelling salesman Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr), who is saddled with a nagging, invalid wife. One afternoon, Thorwald pulls down his window shade, and his wife's incessant bray comes to a sudden halt. Out of boredom, Jeffries casually concocts a scenario in which Thorwald has murdered his wife and disposed of the body in gruesome fashion. Trouble is, Jeffries' musings just might happen to be the truth. One of Alfred Hitchcock's very best efforts, Rear Window is a crackling suspense film that also ranks with Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (1960) as one of the movies' most trenchant dissections of voyeurism. As in most Hitchcock films, the protagonist is a seemingly ordinary man who gets himself in trouble for his secret desires. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Coming from master legend of the camera Alfred Hitchcock I was very excited to finally watch it and it was a good movie that was incredibly shot. However I have always thought Hitchcock was a master and all of his movies I have seen I have liked vertigo, north by northwest, the birds all good but I do not think this film beats psycho perhaps one of the greatest movies ever made. North by northwest has good camera work as well as great acting by legend Jimmy Stewart I could not help but wanting more tension sooner. This film is a slow burn but worth it overall this is another good Hitchcock movie

      This classic involves a photographer (James Stewart) who, out of boredom of being locked up in his house waiting for his leg cast to be removed, begins to spy on his neighbors, one of whom (Raymond Burr) begin to act suspiciously. This prompts the photographer to look into the matter further, with the aid of his beautiful girlfriend (Grace Kelly) & his maternal nurse (Thelma Ritter). This is an enjoyable study of voyeurism and film viewing.

      Hitchcock Classic

      This is one of Hitchcock's best movies and one of James Stewart's best performances. (though, he has many) It is a clever movie, that gives us a lot of information with visual aids, so we may get to the heart of the story quick. It is a fun roller coaster of a movie that has stood up to the changing times. Not many movies are as relevant today as they were 53 years ago. A must see movie and one that belongs in your DVD collection.

      Rear Window has forever been my favorite Hitchcock movie. I was always bummed that it was only available in a box set, but when it was finally available by itself I was very excited. It's a great blu-ray for a great movie! Highly recommended!

      This is one of my favorite Hitchcock films. Truly an original concept (which is more than I can say for most today). Very suspenseful and great camera work.

      An oldie, but goody. This is the way movies should be made. Grace Kelly was a true "Hollywood Movie Star". A must movie for any collector.
