Rear Windows and Revolving Doors: Three By Hitchcock

The use of the window in Alfred Hitchcock's films is a constant trope. Rear Window epitomizes this fascination, but Hitchcock began using clear glass to explore interior space versus exterior space and what it symbolizes as early as 1926 in The Lodger. The relationships between home and the outside world, self and "other," safety and peril—and of course, voyeurism—illuminate his fascination with the window and all it conjures.
