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: James Stewart uses a camera flashgun to defend himself by repeatedly temporarily blinding Thorvald in the closing scene. The number of flashbulbs in the cardboard box drops by two between cuts as Stewart wheels himself back away from Thorwald.
