35MM PRESENTATION

Jeffries (James Stewart), a prize-winning photographer, has a broken leg, and sits sweating out his days spying on the neighbors from his cramped apartment. At first aghast at his pursuits, girlfriend Lisa (Grace Kelly) and nurse Stella (Thelma Ritter) eventually join him as he uncovers--or thinks he uncovers--a murder. This classic is at once sexy, thrilling, hilarious, and one of the most entertaining pictures the Master ever gave us.
