The Making and Restoring of Rear Window

Rear Window Ethics (2002)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Very good documentary about not only the making of REAR WINDOW but also the major restoration work that had to be done to restore it to its original look. Peter Bogdanovich, Pat Hitchcock, Curtis Hanson, Herb Steinberg (Paramount publicity director), Herbert Coleman (assistant director), Robin Woods (Hitchcock author), Georgine Darcy (ballorina in film) and Doc Erikson are interviewed about the film and Robert A. Harris and James C. Katz are interviewed about the restoration. Those who were actually involved in the production share some wonderful stories about the making of the film. This includes how they built the sets the give the film its look as well as its lighting, which was an interesting thing because they basically set up four different lights to tell what time of day it was. There's also some great discussions about the changes made from the story to the movie as well as a story dealing with a scene that was discussed but not shot. Bogdanovich talks about his opinion on the film as well as a few discussions that he had with Hitchcock. An audio interview (or conversation) between the two is played in parts here. The stuff dealing with the restoration is actually one of the major highlights here as both Harris and Katz explain about the poor condition of the prints and go into good detail about what they had to do to try and get the film back to its original look. Fans of the film will certainly enjoy hearing both aspects of the film. The documentary does a very good job at showing what all went into the picture as well as everything it took to save it.
