Alfred Hitchcock was at the height of his powers as a visual storyteller when he made this enduring suspense classic. James Stewart is L. B. Jeffries, an injured photojournalist confined to his tiny, sweltering Manhattan apartment with nothing to do but watch his unsuspecting neighbors through his courtyard window. It's all harmless fun until one hot, restless night, when he witnesses what he believes to be a murder. Grace Kelly costars in this brilliantly crafted study of the pleasures and perils of voyeurism.
