Blogging from A to Z April Challenge "R" is for Rear Window [1954]

Rear Window is a 1954 American mystery thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and written by John Michael Hayes based on Cornell Woolrich's 1942 short story "It Had to Be Murder". Originally released by Paramount Pictures, the film stars James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter and Raymond Burr. It was screened at the 1954 Venice Film Festival.

The film is considered by many filmgoers, critics and scholars to be one of Hitchcock's best and one of the greatest mystery movies ever made. The film received four Academy Award nominations and was ranked #42 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies list and #48 on the 10th-anniversary edition. In 1997, Rear Window was added to the United States National Film Registry in the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

  1. I have never heard of this movie... which is shocking considering I love Hitchcock and Stewart... oh hang on... now that I look at the first picture... I think I've seen a little... but now I want to see how it ends (was it the birds that killed him :)

  2. Mark, never? I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you!
    There was also a remake with Christopher Reeves. His last film I believe.

  3. I'm with Mr. Koopmans! Except that in my case it sure ain't shocking :PP

  4. It took me forever to see anything Raymond Burr acted in after seeing Rear Window.
