Re your comment below:

"I don't think there is a good film translation of any Woolrich and I don't think there ever will be."

Well, that's in the eye of the beholder, of course. Personally, I think THE WINDOW was very good. So was REAR WINDOW.

There's another Hitchcock adaptation, one he did for TV, called "Four O'Clock," based on Woolrich's short story "Three O'Clock" (or is it that the TV play is
"Three O'Clock" and it's based on "Four O'Clock?"). I've never seen it, but Woolrich biographer Mike Nevins regards it as the best, most faithful film adaptation of a Woolrich story ever.
