Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
Staring: James Stewart, Grace Kelly and Raymond Burr
Widely regarded as Hitchcock’s’ finest hour, thanks to its heady mixture of suspense and mystery coupled with some excellent acting from James Stewart, and Grace Kelly.
James Stewart is the photographer who is confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg; he passes his days by spying on his neighbours out of the window at the back of his apartment. His relatively harmless voyeurism takes a sinister turn when he sees the man in the opposite flat indulging in some seriously dodgy behaviour (lots of surreptitious use of kitchen tools etc.) and begins to suspect he may have murdered his wife… an essential and unmissable film.
