 Rear Window

directed by Alfred Hitchcock

The Classic Thriller from 1954

Considered by many film-goers, critics, and scholars to be one of Hitchcock’s best and most thrilling pictures. The movie stars James Stewart as photojournalist L. B. Jeffries, Grace Kelly as his fashion-model girlfriend, Lisa Carol Fremont, and Raymond Burr as the suspected killer, Lars Thorwald. The film combines its main theme, a murder mystery, with a critical examination of the ethics of marriage and voyeurism.
