About the Film:
Disclaimer: This is a kind of a movie which is like an old bottle of Scottish Wine. The older it gets, the better. The protagonist, in this movie, has nothing to do but wait for his fractured leg to heal. Being a photographer, he peeps through his rear window and finds something fishy about his neighbours. What follows is eternal suspense.
Why should you watch it:
With Alfred Hitchcock’s abominable direction, and Grace Kelly gracing the screen alongside James Stewart, the movie is a bliss. It’s fantastic to see how, in 1954, Alfred Hitchcock, the Father of Suspense Movies, was able to adorn the 70mm film with suspense of magnanimous proportions, that is to put you to the edge of your seats.
