Rear Window earns a high place on my list of the best movies of all time. I watched it again last night, a perfect movie choice for an apartment dweller during a heat wave.
The technical quality of Hitchcock's directing and vision is amazing, all those small details! The huge apartment courtyard set is a feat in itself. Jimmy Stewart is perfect as a cranky photographer. And Grace Kelly is a total knock out.
Her wardrobe is absolutely to drool for. The black and white cocktail dress. The black sheer dress. The white halter blouse with green pencil skirt. The blue dress with brown flowers. The satin nightgown. I want it all! Preferably, right this second.
