A few days ago I re-watched the Hitchcock classic, "Rear Window".... Let's just say I've seen it many times. I never get tired of it. It's a film where the writing and acting is flawless. If you haven't seen it-- you must do so immediately.
Oh & the fashion: Grace Kelly's outfits & style...gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
p.s.- This post is a part of a guest post I wrote for The Film Yap's site last year.
Stars: Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter, Raymond Burr
In this Hitchcock classic (many critics believe it’s his finest film), L.B. Jeffries (Jimmy Stewart) is a world-famous photographer recuperating in his apartment after breaking his leg. He’s bored, stuck in a wheelchair and spends most of his time staring out the window, which has a view of the courtyard and several other apartments. While snooping on his neighbors, Jeffries is particularly intrigued by Lars Thorwald’s (Raymond Burr) apartment and his suddenly missing wife. Where is she? Was she murdered? Or is Jeffries imagining things? Luckily, Jeffries has a savvy socialite girlfriend, Lisa (Grace Kelly), and a street smart nurse, Stella (Thelma Ritter), to help him play detective. Are you a bit of a voyeur? Watch “Rear Window” and you’ll think twice before you grab the binoculars to spy on a neighbor.
