To pass the time between visits from his nurse (Thelma Ritter) and his fashion model girlfriend Lisa (Grace Kelly), the binocular-wielding Jeffries stares through the rear window of his apartment at the goings-on in the other apartments around his courtyard.As in most Hitchcock films, the protagonist is a seemingly ordinary man who gets himself in trouble for his secret desires.
