and here's some MOVIE TRIVIA:

~Alfred Hitchcock supposedly hired Raymond Burr to play Lars Thorwald because he could be easily made to look like his old producer David O. Selznick, whom Alfred Hitchcock felt interfered too much.

~At the time the set was the largest indoor set built at Paramount Studios

~During the month-long shoot Georgine Darcy, who played Miss Torso, lived in her apartment all day, relaxing between takes as if really at home.

~The love affair between war photographer Robert Capa and actress Ingrid Bergman is believed to be Alfred Hitchcock's inspiration for the film's romantic aspect.

~Director Cameo: [Alfred Hitchcock] about a half hour into the film, winding the clock in the songwriter's apartment. The songwriter is real-life songwriter Ross Bagdasarian.

~All the apartments in Thorwald's building had electricity and running water, and could be lived in.

~Screenwriter John Michael Hayes based Lisa on his own wife, who'd been a professional fashion model when they married.

~The 35mm camera that James Stewart holds with the huge telephoto lens attached is an early 1950s Exakta Varex VX manufactured in Dresden, Germany. The Paramount property department purposely covered over the name with black masking tape.

what a control freak Hitchcock was! I ran into this trivia about Miss Torso:

*In 2000 she boasted that although she could not button up the pink shorts with the 21 inch waist band worn in Rear Window but she could still get them on.

*When she met Alfred Hitchcock she had no idea who he was. He suggested that she get an agent. She did not and consequently only got paid $350.00 for Rear Window.

*Mother initially wanted her to become a stripper; she chose ballet instead.
