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.
