James Stewart and Grace Kelly star in Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller which explores the role of the voyeur. After breaking his leg during a shoot, photo-journalist L.B. 'Jeff' Jeffries (Stewart) is forced to spend a humid summer recuperating in his Greenwich Village apartment. The wheelchair-bound Jeff whiles away his time observing his neighbours through a telephoto lens, bestowing them with nicknames and growing familiar with their daily routines. However, his society girlfriend Lisa (Kelly) is exasperated and then alarmed when Jeff becomes obsessed with the notion that Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr), who lives in the apartment opposite, has murdered his wife...

The blu-ray disk itself has a splendid re-printed and remastered image, but is very annoying when you want to kick it off at the start of the film. There are the obligatory copyright things, and then, a fairly long infomercial about Univeral studios and its past films, which you can't get past without it all playing. This happens if you termporarily pause the film for too long, or stop it to restart. Some disks do behave badly like this - others are fine, so it isn't down to the blu ray player (I have 2 different ones, and it does this on both).
Grace Kelly, the archetypal cool blonde shows an unsepected warmth in her scenes with James Stewart and the lesser roles are equally well played, particularly by Thelma as the insurance company's nurse who assists Kelly with her sleuthing.
The restoration used for the Blu Ray, though not quite up to modern standards. is a big improvement on the prints shown on televison or DVD in the past, which had suffered severe fading. At last we can appreciate the film as it was meant to be.
