(1954) “We’re all voyeurs to some extent” – François Truffaut. Laid up with a broken leg in his “low rent district” flat (in the West Village!), news fotog James Stewart wiles away the sweaty summertime hours between visits from uptown gal Grace Kelly by using that telephoto lens to zero in on the human comedy across his courtyard – but, hey, what’s Raymond Burr up to? One of the Master’s greatest successes: a witty, nerve-shredding entertainment and technical tour de force. DCP. Approx. 112 mins.
