Rear Window

The neighbour (Thorwald) did kill his wife. Thorwald catches on to Jimmy Stewart and then hunts him down in his apartment. Being in a wheel chair he's practically defenseless. Thorwald manages to throw him out the window but then gets arrested. Stewart re-breaks both his legs and continues to see Lisa (Grace Kelly). (Lisa is not wearing a wedding ring in the last shot).

Continuity mistake: 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. (00:26:15)
