Rear Window

Rear Window (1954)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: The drainpipe running down the building where the Thorvalds live, the one between the living room windows and the bedroom windows of the block, becomes at least 1 foot (10cms) wide at least three times through the film, and changes to a gingery colour, almost as if it has become a plank of wood standing against the wall. It also has a pipe or something running into it in a couple of shots, just above the Thorvalds' bedroom window, but as this would be the "dog" couple's bedroom, there shouldn't be a pipe coming down from there. At other times the drainpipe just looks like an ordinary drain pipe. Even though we are not meant to be looking at anything but the activities through the windows, the drainpipe is very evident in many shots as the action frequently moves over it into the adjacent rooms. (Visible in the remastered video version and others.)

Correction: The 'gingery wood' against the wall is actually the window frame from inside Jeffries window you see, it is open and the position of thew frame looks like it's against the wall on the other building opposite.

Alex Mortimer

Corrected entry: Jimmy Stewart has a broken leg in the movie. However, the cast shifts from one leg to another.

Correction: No he doesn't - he does break his other leg (after Thorwald pushes him out the window) towards the end though....

Mistakes

There's an oscillating fan near the ceiling that alternates between running and not running from one cut to another in one scene.

Trivia

If you look closely in one of the shots looking at the musician's pad you can see Hitchcock making a cameo like he does in all his movies. If you pay attention however, you might notice that this is a reenactment of a scene from one of his other movies, 'Rope.' Also, Hitchcock is standing in for James Stewart and the character he played in 'Rope' since Mr. Stewart is busy spying on this scene.
