Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window is easily one of my favourite films, with James Stewart and Grace Kelly never better than in Hitch’s textured tale of the mystery of the sudden disappearance of a neighbour.
Artist Jeff Desom has created a visual installation based on the film, taking each individual component of the impressive set and aligning them as it would be seen if we were standing at the window of Jefferies’ window.
This video shows how it was done and then runs the events of the films in order. For more information on how it was done click here.
Sadly what you don’t get to see from this vantage point is the best kiss in cinematic history.
Here’s the video, thanks to Gary Phillips for the heads up.
