Witness to Murder 
1. Would you believe Jesse White as a police detective?
2. “Show Mr. Peabody to the library, please.”
3. The police car pulls up. “What’s going on?”
“Some crazy dame is trying to kill herself!” The bystander points vaguely down the street.
If you’ve ever wondered what Rear Window would be like without well-written characters, a sense of humor, a great score, and genuine suspense, then …
