About Rear Window:
It only takes a witness to spoil the perfect crime in one of the most acclaimed suspense films of all time. The legendary James Stewart stars as professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries, who becomes obsessed with watching the private dramas of his neighbors while confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg. When he suspects that a salesman many have murdered his nagging, invalid wife, Jeffries enlists the help of his stunning socialite girlfriend (Grace Kelly) to investigate the suspicious chain of events. Rear Window is the grippring thriller that has kept generations of fans enthralled with one of the most nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat endings in all of film history.

About The Birds:
Tippi Hedren plays Melanie Daniels, a beautiful blonde who arrives in Bodega Bay in pursuit of the handsome and eligible Mitch Brenner, played by Rod Taylor. But love is not the only thing in the air when thousands of birds descend upon the town, attacking and terrorizing its residents. Soon melanie and Mitch are fighting for their lives against a deadly, unexplainable force in this spine-tingling portrait of nature at its most powerful and ruthless.

About Vertigo:
James Stewart and Kim Novak light up the screen in this spellbinding classic of deception and betrayal. Scottie Ferguson (Stewart), a recently retired detective, is hired to shadow a friend’s tragically suicidal wife, Madeleine Elster (Novak). After he saves her from drowning in the San Francisco Bay, Scottie’s interest in the beautiful but icy blonde shifts from business to romance. But when tragedy strikes again, Scottie must overcome the vertigo that haunts his dreams in order to unravel the secrets of the past and find the key to his future.
