About the Film
Based on Cornell Woolrich's 1942 short story "It Had to Be Murder," Rear Window is regarded as one of director Alfred Hitchcock's most thrilling works. It has been argued that the film is an analysis of the voyeuristic relationship between man and screen. Whether one agrees with the analysis or not, Hitchcock creates suspsense with POV shots and the implementation of naturalistic sound.
