I can't remember when I didn't love this movie. Glamorous Grace Kelly (can I have her outfits--please?). Photographer played by Jimmy Stewart. Hilarious aid Thelma Ritter. Doubting cop by Wendell Corey. Scary murderer portrayed by Raymond Burr. A haunting song.
The movie:is a 1954 American mystery thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and based on a short story by Cornell Woolrich. While a photographer recuperates from a broken leg, he looks out his window to a small courtyard and becomes obsessed with a man who possibly murdered his wife.
My thoughts: I classify this as a perfect movie. Perfectly cast. Perfectly acted. Moves well. Costuming and set is outstanding. And yes, there is a peek at Alfred Hitchcock--have you ever tried to find him in his movies? He's there. This is a must-see for everyone. The film received four Academy Award nominations.
It does make you wonder, do we really know people?
Do you ever just people watch?
