(Paramount, 1954, 112 minutes)
While convalescing from a broken leg, action photographer L.B. Jeffries (James Stewart) wiles away the hours by keeping tabs on the comings and goings of his neighbors across the courtyard. To ease the boredom, “Jeff” starts to imagine possible storylines that would explain all of the interesting behaviors of his neighbors. Visiting him during his recovery are nurse Stella (Thelma Ritter) and girlfriend Lisa Fremont (Grace Kelly). Soon the threesome is “supposing” and “what iffing” with wild abandon. Then one of the neighbors mysteriously disappears and the group starts to devise a plan to find out what happened. This is one of Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpieces of suspense!

After scouring Max’s ledger books, Leo offhandedly mentions that Max would actually be better off financially if he were to produce an absolute flop, keep the investors’ money and flee the country. Determined to find the worst project ever, Max and Leo arrange to produce a musical entitled “Springtime for Hitler,” sure that it will be a complete and utter failure. This is a comedy that only Mel Brooks could write and direct!
