Critic reviews of title
“The story is told with tricks and intricate technique, but the mystery magician, Mr. Hitchcock, never forgets that what people want most is a spine-chilling climax. He gives it to them.”
- Boston Globe
“The boorish but fascinating pastime of peeking into other people's homes – a thing that New York apartment dwellers have a slight disposition to do – is used by Director Alfred Hitchcock to impel a tense and exciting exercise.”
- New York Times
“Not only is Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window one of his best pictures, it's one of the best films ever made altogether.”
