“Rear Window” will be the final film in the Niobrara County Reads! Dinner and Movie series. Professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries breaks his leg while getting an action shot at an auto race. Confined to his New York apartment, he spends his time looking out of the rear window observing the neighbors. He begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high society fashion-consultant girlfriend Lisa Freemont and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring James B. Stewart and Grace Kelly this is sure to be an excellent end to this film series. Deane Tucker will facilitate the discussion which will include participants at WWC.
