James Stewart, Grace Kelly, and Alfred Hitchcock on the set of REAR WINDOW, 1954

We are big fans of Hitchcock’s work at Frenzy Films (we recently watched “The Rope” and “Lifeboat” again, oh boy do they stand the test of time…) so we absolutely loved this vide-essay which heightens three key elements of the films of the Master of Suspense:

  1. Pure Cinema (remember the opening of Rear Window?)
  2. Suspense (it goes without saying)
  3. Chance (but only to make things go awry…)
