31 Days of Oscar: Rear Window

Do you like to watch? If so, you have something in common with James Stewart's devil-may-care photographer laid up with a broken leg and a curious eye in Alfred Hitchcock's classic voyeuristic thriller Rear Window.

Even with a glowing Grace Kelly on hand to distract him, Stewart is more interested in what is going on across the way in Raymond Burr's apartment. And don't forget the always welcome presence of a crusty Thelma Ritter to liven up the proceedings.

Nominated for four Academy Awards, including a Best Director nod for Hitch, Rear Window will air at 10:15 PM EST tomorrow on Turner Classic Movies.
