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.
