About the Movie

None of Hitchcock's films has ever given a clearer view of his genius for suspense than Rear Window. When professional photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries (James Stewart) is confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg, he becomes obsessed with watching the private dramas of his neighbors play out across the courtyard. When he suspects a salesman may have murdered his nagging wife, Jeffries enlists the help of his glamorous socialite girlfriend (Grace Kelly) to investigate the highly suspicious chain of events… Events that ultimately lead to one of the most memorable and gripping endings in all of film history.

Rear Window

Hitchcock at his finest! He made many great movies, but Rear Window stands out as one of his best. Most inovative. Only Hitchcock could creat a movie with such suspense where the camera never leaves James Stewarts apartment. It is one of a kind movie. I recommend it to everyone, and if you haven't seen it for awhile,it's worth another viewing.

Hitchcock's best

What can I add to all the other 5-star reviews? Not much, but to say that this is one of my top 3 movies of all time. It's absolutely classic. I've probably watched it 20 times. Grace Kelly and Jimmie Stewart are amazing.

My favorite hitchcock movie!

Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter and James Stewart at their finest.
