Rear Window Movie by Alfred Hitchcock

Rear Window

1954

Alfred Hitchcock

John Michael Hayes

Overview:
Photographer Stewart is confined to a wheelchair because of an accident, so he spends his idle time peering out his apartment window watching his neighbors live their lives. Believing he's seen Burr kill his wife, Stewart enlists the help of his fiancee (Kelly) and his nurse (Ritter) to find out the truth. Hitchcock deftly handles the confining spaces and delivers a claustrophobic mystery that's wonderfully well-acted.
Based on a story by Cornell Woolrich.
