Rear Window

Signature Classic
Thursday, July 29
Plaza Theatre Kendle Kidd Performance Hall

One of the greatest examples of voyeurism in film, Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window is often considered to be the best example of Hitchcockian perfection. James Stewart plays L.B. Jefferies, a photographer confined to a wheelchair by an injury, whose only amusement is gazing out of his window at the neighbors across the way. He entertains himself by naming and inventing stories about each person he watches. His amusement turns into obsession when he realizes he may be the only witness to a murder. He convinces his charming girlfriend (the radiant Grace Kelly), and his visiting nurse (wisecracking Thelma Ritter) to help him reveal the crime and expose the criminal. Rear Window underwent a painstaking restoration in 1997. With enhanced color and sound, it made a triumphant return to movie theaters and introduced a new generation to Hitchcock’s masterpiece.
