Paramount at the Movies Presents: Rear Window [PG]
Movies | 02/22/2019 | 7:00PM
Join us for our weekday Matinee Movies this season. Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Rear Window will feature a 2:00PM screening in addition to the evening event.
None of Hitchcock’s films have ever given a clearer view of his genius for suspense than Rear Window. When professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries (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 a salesman may have murdered his nagging wife, Jeffries enlists the help of his glamorous socialite girlfriend (Grace Kelly) to investigate the highly suspicious chain of events… Which ultimately leads to one of the most memorable and gripping endings in all of film history.

Did you know?
- During the month-long shoot, Georgine Darcy (Miss Torso), “lived” in her apartment all day, relaxing between takes as if really at home.
- Sir Alfred Hitchcock gave Georgine Darcy free range to choreograph her own dance moves for her character, Miss Torso. Darcy was to dance on her own volition during filming. Hitchcock’s only restriction was that he forbade her to take professional dance lessons, as he wanted her to maintain the imprecision of an amateur dancer.
- The only movie in which Grace Kelly is seen with a cigarette. She refused to smoke in movies, except this once.
