Rear Window

Alfred Hitchcock

When it comes to thrillers, Alfred Hitchcock knows how to give audiences an edge-of-the-seat suspense story. This 1954 classic inspired writers all over the world. A wheelchair-bound professional photographer L.B. ‘Jeff' Jeffries (played wonderfully by James Stewart) whiles away his time observing his neighbours from his window. As the days progress, he suspects that one of his neighbours has murdered his wife. How he investigates it from his apartment, and brings out the truth forms the rest of the story. The characters are simple, but it's the thrilling plot that keeps us glued to the screens till the very end. Rear Window is undoubtedly one of Hitchcock's best.
