Celebrate the 25th anniversary of our City Lights series with Hitchcock's classic paranoid whodunit. Q&A to follow—read on for more!
Confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg, professional photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries (James Stewart) begins voyeuristically spying on his neighbors through his apartment window. Suddenly convinced he witnessed a murder, Jeffries persuades his beguiling girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and wisecracking caretaker (Thelma Ritter) to investigate what may have happened. [112 min; thriller; English]
A Q&A with City Lights curator and PhD student Caleb Allison and IU Libraries Moving Image Archive Director Rachael Stoeltje will follow the screening.
"Perhaps the most elegant and satisfying of Alfred Hitchcock’s thrillers." — Wendy Ide, Times (UK)
"Sure, Vertigo is more personal, Psycho more bizarre, North by Northwest more thrilling. But Rear Window shows the Master of Suspense at his most spare, sophisticated and sinisterly clever a movie that is essentially about watching movies." — John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"This is Alfred Hitchcock at his best—a hugely entertaining, romantic and witty film with just a touch of mayhem." — Eleanor Ringel Cater, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
