Rear Window (Alfred Hitchcock – 1954) A-

I love how the apartments across from L.B. Jeffries (James Stewart) are all flat, the rooms go nicely longways in a line. Very convenient for him to watch all that is going on in every room as he recuperates from a broken leg. One of those neighbors might’ve killed his wife. Mr. Jeffries is convinced of it. He involves his fiancé (Grace Kelly in some awesome dresses no less and Stewart goes through the whole film in his ratty pajamas), his nurse and his police detective buddy. It’s a wonderful classic for many reasons. It’s voyeuristic, the acting is great and it’s beautifully shot and directed.
