About the Authors
  • Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window is one of the icons of American filmmaking. A perfect example of Hollywood cinema at its best, it is an engaging piece of entertainment as well as a fascinating meditation on the nature of the film itself. A suspense thriller about a chair-bound observer who suspects his neighbor of murdering his wife, the narrative becomes the vehicle for Hitchcock's exploration of the basic ingredients of cinema, from voyeurism and dreamlike fantasy, to the process of narration itself. This volume provides a fresh analysis of Rear Window, which is examined from a variety of perspectives in a series of essays published here for the first time.

    • The essays provide a broad array of approaches to the film
    • The Chion essay is translated into English for the first time
    • The Curtis essay is based on original research using the Paramount and Alfred Hitchcock collections in the Margaret Herrick Library at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences
