CCCCD Hosts Final Film In Auteur Series With "Rear Window"

March 18, 2004 - Collin County Community College District (CCCCD) presents their final Auteur Film for the series. The screening will be Alfred Hitchcock's personal favorite "Rear Window," at 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 5 in room C104 on the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. The film is free and open to the public.

Lead character, Jeff Jeffries, played by James Stewart, is a photographer who breaks his leg during a photo shoot. While confined to a wheelchair in his apartment, he watches the world outside his rear window. Strange events lead him to believe the man opposite his apartment may have murdered his wife. Jeffries then enlists the help of his girlfriend, played by Grace Kelly and his nurse, played by Thelma Ritter to discover the truth.

Following the film, there will be a brief panel discussion featuring Thomas Chesney, dean of Communications and Humanities; Andrew Anderson, professor of music and Carolyn Perry, professor of humanities.

Auteurs are filmmakers whose creative vision has a definitive impact on their work. For more information, contact Carolyn Perry at 972.881.5140.
