Okay, I felt like it was time to bring some Hitchcock back to the blog. My last Hitchcock was The Birds, which from the replies, seemed to be loved by some and some of you seemed to be haunted by it. Time to try again!
Here's some information from Wikipedia:
Rear Window is a 1954 American suspense film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, written by John Michael Hayes and based on Cornell Woolrich's 1942 short story "It Had to Be Murder". Originally released by Paramount Pictures, the film stars Jimmy Stewart as a photographer who spies on his neighbors while recuperating from a broken leg; Grace Kelly as his girlfriend; Thelma Ritter as his nurse; Wendell Corey as a police detective; and Raymond Burr as one of the neighbors.
I don't have this one in my collection, and it's been several years since I last watched it on TV (I don't get any stations since the digital conversion, even with a converter box, and I don't have satellite or cable - life is so much nicer without the distraction of TV. I do still have a TV to watch DVDs on.). So, I may have to see if I can track down a copy, or else check to see if it has been uploaded to YouTube. Have a great Friday! Wow, this week went by too fast!
