If you love your suspense richly textured and multi-layered, you can't do much better than master Alfred Hitchcock. Rear Window stars Jimmy Stewart as a photographer recovering from a broken leg. Bored to distraction, he begins to surreptitiously spy on his neighbours, delighting in their squabbles and affairs. But things take a grim turn when he sees what appears to be a murder. His imagination starts to soar and he devotes himself full time to photographing the clues to a possible homicide. Hitchcock's brilliant storytelling and cinematography are a unique experience and the acting is exceptional in this classic film. This DVD version contains production notes, an original documentary on the film, the entire script and lots of goodies for fans.

Synopsis

The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and photographer L.B. Jefferies is stuck in his apartment with a broken leg, and nothing to do -- that is, nothing to do but spy on his neighbors through their open windows. Though it's initially "Miss Torso," an attractive dancer, who gets his attention, he quickly becomes more fascinated by the Thorwalds, a bickering couple across the yard. And when Mrs. Thorwald disappears, Jefferies is sure that something's wrong. Soon, despite the warnings of his girlfriend Lisa and his motherly nurse Stella, Jefferies has out his binoculars and telephoto lens and is studying his neighbor "like a bug under glass." But if Mr. Thorwald ever looks back, it's Jefferies who just might be in trouble...
