Who are your neighbors?: 60 years of peeping through the “Rear Window”

Who are your neighbors?: 60 years of peeping through the “Rear Window”.

We should be sharing more of the wonderful work we discover online, and so we’ll start with this excellent review of the actors who play Jeff’s neighbours in Rear Window (Alfred Hitchcock, 1954).  Performances like these are taken for granted, but Jnpickens at Comet Over Hollywood reveals there are some fascinating facts lurking behind these thankless roles.  It’s absolutely inspired to ask who these actors were and, in a way, reminds me of Robert Ray’s unconventional approach to film study and his surrealist games borne from those minute, unconsidered details glossed over in the classical Hollywood narrative.
