20 Interesting Behind the Scenes Photos of Alfred Hitchcock’s "Rear Window" (1954)

Rear Window, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller about an injured and restless photojournalist-turned-voyeur who suspects one of his neighbors of murder, will return to movie theaters for two days in March. The film is an intriguing, brilliant, macabre Hitchcockian visual study of obsessive human curiosity and voyeurism. John Michael Hayes' screenplay was based on Cornell Woolrich's original 1942 short story or novelette, It Had to Be Murder.
“It was the possibility of doing a purely cinematic film. You have an immobilized man looking out. That’s one part of the film. The second part shows what he sees and the third part shows how he reacts. This is actually the purest expression of a cinematic idea.” — Alfred Hitchcock
Originally released by Paramount Pictures, the film stars James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter and Raymond Burr. It was screened at the 1954 Venice Film Festival. Rear Window is considered by many filmgoers, critics and scholars to be one of Hitchcock's best and one of the greatest movies ever made.
