REAR WINDOW (Theatrical Release USA 1954)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Rear Window has an all-star cast that includes James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter, and Raymond Burr. It’s an excellent Alfred Hitchcock thriller film and still holds its own in 2020 nearly 70 years after its first release. A WOW! BRAVO! film that deserves a re-watch. Terrific concept that plays out with outstanding camera angles and panning of the camera is well appreciated and well received. Great script and storyline.

Storyline

A recuperating, wheelchair-bound man observes the lives of his neighbors from his apartment’s back window.
