Rear Window

This is my favorite Alfred Hitchcock film. The elegant Grace Kelly indulges Jimmy Stewart who has developed a habit of spying on his neighbors. Stewart thinks he witnesses a murder through a neighbor's window and falls into an obsession in his attempts to solve the mystery. The only problem is that he is in a wheelchair. What started as a relief from boredom becomes a thrilling hunt to uncover the truth. Things aren't always what they seem in this scary film. Kelly is true to form as the Helen of Troy of our time; she and Stewart's chemistry makes the film definitely worth watching in addition to the clever plot.
