Academy Award-nominated for Best Director, Best Writing, Best Cinematography, and Best Sound, with a screenplay by John Michael Hayes based on Cornell Woolrich’s short story “It Had to Be Murder.”

Confined to his New York apartment, an injured photographer keeps himself occupied by observing his neighbors, and he begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife.

“A witty, sprightly, romantic, morbid, paranoid blend of all Hitchcock’s strongest suits”
