Scary, funny, irresistibly slick: When people praise Alfred Hitchcock, this is the film they talk about. Constrained to a wheelchair after breaking his leg, photographer Jeff Jefferies (James Stewart) kills his time by peeping in on the lives of his neighbors, leading him to suspect one of murdering his wife. Aided by his girlfriend (Grace Kelley), this possible discovery unfolds from Jefferies's bedridden perspective. Despite it's claustrophobic setting this is undoubtedly one of Hitchcock's most cinematic films, which allows the viewer to indulge in their inner voyeur.

"A lovely Thursday evening film! Strong woman and man working together to solve a heinous crime!!" - Rose Tatarsky, WUD Film Committee Member/MAD Programmer
