In Alfred Hitchcock's filmography, probably no single picture is more illuminating about the man and the moviemaker than Rear Window (1954), a thriller about the infinite adventure and huge pitfalls of peeping into other people's lives. As a photographer confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg, James Stewart has nothing better to do than to stare across the courtyard of his Manhattan apartment and ogle a sexy dancer, a Miss Lonelyhearts and the unhappily married couple in the flats across the way. First with binoculars and then with the telephoto lens on his camera, Stewart spies on these simultaneously unspooling silent movies, imagining different scenarios that distract him from his fiancee, fashionplate Grace Kelly (never lovelier)

Another Grace Kelly bio, titled simply "Grace," arrived in bookstores this week, and like other examinations of Kelly's life, it places more emphasis on her private life than her cinematic accomplishments. The fact that Kelly made a dozen movies, three with Alfred Hitchcock, and won an Academy Award (for "The Country Girl") during her relatively brief, six-year Hollywood career is regarded by biographers as a dalliance. For my money, Kelly was a much better actress than princess.

They can be anything from decals in the windows to stuffed animals on the back seat to illuminated license plates. What's happening, America? What are we doing to our cars? Suddenly, decorating the car's interior has become as imperative as selecting your living room furniture. These trinkets, paraphernalia, dealies, doodads, mirror ornaments and even objets d'art have become a part of our car- conscious nation.

The old Jacob Reed's Sons store on Chestnut Street, now a CVS, is justly admired for its palazzo-style facade and arts-and-craft mosaic, created by architect William L. Price in 1905. But this baby's got back, too. The rear facade on Sansom Street is a minor-key version of the front, featuring a monumental stained-glass window that would be at home in a grand church. Nowadays, we're lucky if our downtown buildings present one good face to the world. You certainly don't want to look at their backs - often so cluttered with loading docks, garage doors, ventilation units, and Dumpsters.

It's a sweltering summer evening in New York. A man with his leg in a cast is asleep in his wheelchair, oblivious to the din outside. He awakens to find a young woman, blond, with bright blue eyes, standing over him, red lipstick, a string of pearls around her neck, in the most elegant of black and white gowns. She plants a kiss on his lips. Is she a dream? An apparition? No, simply Grace Kelly, making her entrance in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window , asking James Stewart - as the hobbled photojournalist soon to believe he has witnessed a murder - how his leg is ("Hurts a little")

Fields said the lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Los Angeles federal court. He said that Cruise doesn't like to file lawsuits but that the assertion that the actor has abandoned his daughter is a "vicious lie.

In the first episode of "This Is Not Your Uncle's Buick Regal," presented during the 2011 model year, we were introduced to the base version of this very European midsize sports sedan, and its turbocharged sibling. This fall, Buick has added two more variants on this stylish and satisfying theme: an even more powerful and athletic turbocharged model, the 270-horsepower Regal GS, and the mild hybrid I'm reporting on today: the Regal equipped with e-Assist. It's called a "mild" hybrid because the small, 15-horsepower electric motor isn't powerful enough to motivate the car by itself.

Elisha A. Pollosco had a messy driving record, so when she pulled up Thursday afternoon at her sister's house in Cherry Hill with a broken headlamp on her 2000 silver Pontiac Grand Am and said she had been in a "fender bender," her family didn't question the account. "She was a little bit frazzled. I thought a little fender bender would shake up anybody," sister Gretchen, 27, said Monday. The accident, however, was no fender bender. A short distance away, police said, Elisha Pollosco had struck Binh Tsan on the shoulder of Route 70 near Ranoldo Terrace just before 12:30 p.m. and sped away.
