James Ste­wart and Grace Kelly star

al­fred Hitch­cock’s voyeuris­tic mas­ter­piece stars James Ste­wart as a pho­tog­ra­pher laid up with a bro­ken leg, who whiles away the long days in his Green­wich Vil­lage apart­ment watch­ing his neigh­bours through a zoom lens. He is es­pe­cially in­ter­ested in a man (Ray­mond Burr) look­ing af­ter his in­valid wife. But then she dis­ap­pears, and Ste­wart sus­pects foul play… Grace Kelly plays Ste­wart’s rav­ish­ing girl­friend, a wo­man who wants only him, when all he de­sires is to be left alone with his ob­ses­sion. A re­make fol­lowed in 1998, star­ring Christo­pher Reeve and Daryl Han­nah.
