One of Alfred Hitchock’s best-known works tells the story of a wheelchair-bound photographer, played by James Stewart, with a penchant for voyeurism. Upon witnessing a potential murder, he decides to investigate. As Hitchcock would later tell director Francois Truffaut during a now-famous interview, the film, which also featured Grace Kelly, was inspired by two actual murder cases.
