Jimmy Stewart’s he-man, globe-trotting photographer is laid up for the summer with a broken leg, and enlists the help of Grace Kelly (ordering snacks from 21) when he becomes convinced that neighbor Raymond Burr has murdered his wife. One of the ultimate refinements of Hitchcock’s voyeuristic play with the audience, the fanciful soundstage evocation of Greenwich Village real estate allows for an unchained, free-floating camera. “Then you get to looking out the window. Seeing things you shouldn’t see. Trouble.”
