Directed by the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window is an edge-of-your-seat classic starring two of Hollywood’s most popular stars. When a professional photographer (James Stewart) is confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg, he becomes obsessed with watching the private dramas of his neighbors play out across the courtyard. When he suspects his neighbor of murdering his nagging wife, he enlists his socialite girlfriend (Grace Kelly) to help investigate the suspicious chain of events, leading to one of the most memorable and gripping endings in all of film history. Honored in AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Movies for excellence in film, Rear Window has also been hailed as “one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most stylish thrillers” (Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide).

I really liked the way the movie was set, wit the different neighbors and the different scenarios per each one. Even though it was a mystery movie, I wish it had more suspense to it and more drama. But overall it was ok...the ending was a bit rash and quick. The suspect just opens the door and lets himself in.,,,didn't the lead male actor lock his doors???
Overall, I liked the movie, but did not love it.
Also included on the DVD: "'Rear Window' Ethics", a documentary about the film's restoration (complete with interviews with crew, cast members (such as Miss Torso) and Pat Hitchcock O'Connell, Alfred's daughter); an interview with screenwriter John Michael Hayes; production photographs and notes; trailers. There is also supposedly access to the original script, but I have not yet been able to access this running the DVD on a Mac.
Options include running the film in French and the availability of Spanish or English subtitles. Widescreen format.
One thing I am missing: I believe there is a version of the film with closing credits seen as the blinds in Jeffries' apartment lower, mirroring their being raised during the opening credits, but this ending doesn't seem to be here.
You cannot go wrong with this exciting DVD edition of one of the greatest films of all time.
