Rear Window IMDB site
L.B. "Jeff" Jefferies (James Stewart) is a professional photographer who has been confined to his apartment after an accident has left him with his leg in a cast. Suffering from boredom, he takes to spying on his neighbors through the rear window.
His view of the back of several apartment buildings, their inner courtyard, and the persons dwelling within at first have a strongly Norman Rockwell feel about them.
Over time, however, Jeff comes to believe that a murder has taken place in the building across the courtyard, though his friends, his nurse Stella , and his girlfriend, Lisa Carol Fremont (Grace Kelly) initially think his beliefs are imagined due to his idle behavior.
Almost the entire movie is filmed from inside Jeff's bedroom, and most of the point of view shots (POV) are Jeff's. However, at key points in the movie this rule is broken (usually as a dual or triple POV shot, but also the single POV shots of Doyle, Stella, and Lisa).
Furthermore, there is at least one moment when the viewer sees something while Jeff is asleep, and in two key sequences, characters are seen from angles not possible from Jeff's window. This trend increases throughout the film until the final sequence, when Jefferies' POV is nearly subverted.
The character of Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr) is not seen in close-up and cannot be heard speaking clearly until the climax of the movie. At this point, he appears in Jeff's room. This scene features a sequence shown from Thorwald's point of view as he attempts to proceed towards Jeff, but is repeatedly stopped as Jeff blinds him with his camera flash.
