Rear Window

Hitchcock at his best

(Edit) 26/07/2018

It's all filmed on one set with the hero's bed - he's laid up with a broken leg - front and centre. He's a photographer and apartment bound so the action comes from the invalids various visitors. There's a murder, of course, but it is by no means a routine murder story.

It's 20+ years since I last watched it but it hasn't aged a bit. Sure, the hero's camera I an ancient manual thing, and the all-important flash bulbs are ancient too, but so what?

It's been fully restored. If you haven't seen it, it will keep you on the edge of your seat. The late, great Grace Kelly is a definitive bonus for the men and her AMAZING dress collection is a bonus for the women.
