First Ever Movie A Day Post- Rear Window

I decided to choose one of my all time favorite movies for my first movie a day post. I chose Rear Window, the Hitchcock film not the cheesy remakes made after it. The film was released in 1954. It's a romantic thriller and it stars Jimmy Stewart as well as Grace Kelly. Its about a Photographer (Jimmy Stewart) who is stuck in his wheelchair all day and has nothing better to do but watch his neighbors out his window. He sees something suspicious from one of his neighbors and suspects murder. The rest of the movie is about how him and his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) try to find out what really happened in his neighbors apartment. I wont tell you Hitchcock's thrilling ending so your just going to have to watch it for yourself and form your own opinion. The Movie has 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and I agree with it. There have been plenty of remakes of Rear Window such as the recent Disturbia, but I would only recommend watching the original. If your looking for a Romantic Thriller, Rear Window is the movie you're looking for.


  1. can we please watch this? I was very intrigued after reading your post and I will admit...don't judge me...that I did kind of enjoy the movie Disturbia...(i mean shia labeouf was in it..) so I think this movie would be interesting. This is random but did you ever see the movie, Fear, with Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon? It's another romantic thriller I thought was actually pretty decent.

  2. the movie fear is overrated gina
