Rear Window - 

This supremely stylish Hitchcock thriller is about a photographer, played by Jimmy Stewart, who is confined to his apartment with a broken leg. He proceeds to spy on his neighbors and soon suspects that he’s uncovered a murder. The script is superb and a young Grace Kelly is impossibly glorious — Hitchcock at the peak of his powers.
