Alfred Hitchcock at his finest!! A masterpiece of suspense with James Stewart and Grace Kelly. Can you imagine James Stewart watching his New York City neighbors. Among them is Thelma Ritter and Raymond Burr. They are all so interesting and amusing until he is startled by something he sees. I won't spoil it for you. This is a great who dun it if there ever was one. You won't be able to leave the room without hitting pause. You don't want to miss a thing in "Rear Window". A five star Suspense drama of the highest caliber!

One of the top five of Hitchcock films. Generally, a film audience is a group of voyeurs. The detective in this film (James Stewart) is a voyeur watching the neighboring apartments. So what we have is a group of voyeurs watching a voyeur. All of the shots are taken from inside the voyeur's apartment, except one of the last shots taken towards his apartment. Raymond Burr plays a great evil person in this film. In the future, he will be the good guy for many years as Perry Mason.

Wonderful movie. My goodness. Grace Kelly is beautiful! No wonder why every guy in Hollywood wanted to work with her! Loved the 2 second Hitchock cameo! Loved the ending too!

You can't really go wrong with Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart. Their performances always seem to be compelling, and stand-up to the test of time. Check out Kelly in another solid Hitchcock film, "Dial M for Murder", if you've never seen it.

The most recent of Hitchcock's catalogue that I have (belatedly) caught up on. A clever and often very funny movie that takes place in an apartment and the small complex of other apartments that it overlooks. Loved it.

I absolutely love this movie. It is one of my favourite Hitchcocks. If anyone is wondering, I am a teenager. Just because you aren't old doesn't mean you won't like this.

This was one of those movies that really keeps you interested the whole time. There are some movies where you feel like most scenes aren't worth watching but this one kept you interested throughout the movie. In short, yes I would highly recommend it.

This whole movie takes place in a single room, and nothing much happens for its first two-thirds except for people talking. So how was I on the edge of my seat the whole time? Because this is Hitchcock, and this movie displays him at the height of his talents.

I'm not much on rear window ethics.
