This stylish film noir is based on a story by Cornell Woolrich. World traveling photographer, Jeff Jeffries, has been grounded in his tiny Greenwich Village apartment with a broken leg.  To amuse himself, Jeff spies on his neighbors through high-powered binoculars to the disapproval of his glamorous blond girlfriend, Lisa Fremont. She says no good can come of Jeff’s preoccupation. And she’s right. A man who’s murdered his wife is about to put Jeff and his ladylove in dire jeopardy. The movie starred James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey and Thelma Ritter. Hitchcock was nominated as Best Director.
