Show of hands please --- Who here loves anything with Jimmy Stewart in it? How about the lovely Grace Kelly?
Results --- ** Entire world placing hands skyward. ** :)
Well that's not surprising. Put Jimmy and Grace together (in an Alfred Hitchcock flick no less!), and you can't help but to have a classic piece of motion picture entertainment.
One of the all-time great suspense films, "Rear Window" (1954) places us (the viewer) squarely in the shoes of L.B. Jefferies (Stewart), as he peers out his "rear window" at his courtyard neighbors. (BTW -- My spelling of "Jefferies" in this review IS correct. I've noticed "Jefferies" almost always being misspelled "Jeffries" (lacking an "E"). The spelling of Jeff's last name can easily be verified at the beginning of the movie, when the camera pans across his leg cast, revealing the words: "Here lie the broken bones of L.B. Jefferies". I assume that the filmmakers didn't deliberately have Jeff's last name misspelled on the cast. Of course, I suppose that's always *possible*; but I fail to see a reason WHY they'd do it.) :-)
Hitchcock lets the plot of the movie unfold in sections, building the suspense and drama with his usual superb efficiency and skill. But "Rear Window", when you stop and think about it for a minute, doesn't really follow the same "format" as many (or most) other Hitchcock pictures -- in that we (the audience) are just as much in the dark about this possible "murder" across the courtyard as L.B. Jefferies is. In many of the director's films, "Hitch" lets his viewing audience know, right up front, that there's a "bomb under the table" (to use Hitchcock's own example from his interviews).

I saw this movie as a teenager and really liked it. Then I when I saw another Hitchcock recently, I remembered all the style and detail he imbued into his movies and decided to purchase Rear Window. It did not disappoint. A great movie for classic film buffs as well as those who like a suspense and style. Grace Kelly's clothes are worth a look as well.

Le film est tel que je me le rappelais. La livraison a été rapide et le film est arrivé sans heurts.

Ce film d'Hithcock est un de mes préféré, depuis longtemps.
Il faut le voir au moins une fois, et vous y reviendrez après c'est certain.

Format: DVD
North By Northwest and Vertigo are spectacular cinematic achievements but, for me, Rear Window is the one Hitchcock movie everyone must see. It is as perfect as a Hitchcock movie can be. One of the greatest American movies ever made. Not one false note. It is the movie I would show to someone who hasn't seen a Hitchcock movie but wonders what they're all about and why he's so revered. The tremendous psychological drama and cat and mouse suspense are perfectly tuned. Stewart turns in a brillantly nuanced performance as a morally dubious peeping tom. The film is about him, of course. Not about an unseen murder or a pieced together amateur murder investigation. Listen to the dialogue and observe the interactions between Stewart and his guests. Subtext and more subtext. Just perfect.

Have you ever looked into a neighbour's home and caught sight of someone doing something he shouldn't? Have you immediately looked away, or have you lingered a little? If you have lingered a little, then Rear Window is for you. James Stewart plays L.B. Jeffries, a photographer whose broken leg has turned him into a voyeur. He is fascinated by the goings-on of his neighbours, none more so than the character portrayed by Raymond Burr, who would have gotten away with killing his wife if only he had invested in blinds.

Format: DVD
Jimmy Stewart is L.B. Jeffries, an action photographer who is laid up with his leg in a cast to his waist after getting too close to an automobile racing accident. From the rear window of his New York apartment "Jeff" can see the going's on of many of his neighbors - "Miss Lonelyhearts", a middle-aged lady who seems unlucky in love, "The Songwriter" who plunks at his studio piano trying to come up with a hit, "Miss Torso" the dancer who entertains many men in between stretching her lithe body across the courtyard from our vantage-point.
Jeffries also has a girlfriend, a socialite named Lisa Fremont who is played by Grace Kelly, and the Princess never looked more beautiful or graceful than in this film. Her introduction into the movie is, in my humble opinion, the most beautiful "close-up" ever done, and when she kisses Jimmy Stewart how many men have wished that it were them?
OH! Did I mention there is a spine-tingling mystery story mixed in with all of the above? One of Jeffries neighbors is Lars Thorwald, played by Raymond Burr, who has an invalid wife who nags and belittles him. One day the wife is gone. Has she just gone on a visit? Or has Mr. Thorwald had enough and done her in? I won't answer that question, but I promise you'll be on the edge of your seat more than once as you find out. There is more than one scene where the suspense is almost unbearable.
Thelma Ritter is in several scenes as the home-health nurse who comes to look in after the immobilized Jeffries, and she steals all of her scenes with her witty and morbid sense of curiosity.
