Rear Window

MARCH 5 & 8

One of the best from director Alfred Hitchcock, the “master of suspense.” James Stewart, confined to his New York City apartment with a broken leg, finds that “people watching” from his window helps to pass the time.  Things heat up when he and his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) begin to suspect one of his neighbors of murder. Thelma Ritter plays Stewart’s wise-cracking, straight-talking nurse. (“Nobody ever invented a polite word for a killing yet.”)
