Caught "The Window" and I'm glad I did....
- Troy Leong
I caught this movie on TCM one night a month or so ago and now it's one of my favorites. I love noir....and this film has it. I read that the movie was done on a shoestring budget....if it was it sure didn't look like it. I do enjoy watching movies that features New York City...in the olden days. You get to see what that fantastic city looked like. The way it was filmed was very gritty.....and also made the movie quite atmospheric. The little kid Bobby Driscoll was an AWESOME actor...from the middle til the end....I was on the edge of my seat. If you ever see this is going to be on tv....watch it....you'll be glad you did!!!!!!!!
The Window- Worth Watching
I didn't expect this movie to be great but gave it a chance. It was suspenseful and engaging. I love a mystery. Good movie !
The Window (1949)
- James Higgins
This is a great example of what you can do on a shoestring budget. Bobby Driscoll is very effective as a boy, known for telling tall tales, witnesses a murder. No one of course believes his story now. Terrific cast, impressive atmosphere and Ted Tetzlaffs direction is taut and precise. The story evolves beautifully and it is short and fast moving. Very convincingly done and suspenseful.
- Robert Padden
This movie is one of my favorite picks. I usually watch it again and again.
- Ed H
I remember seeing this movie in 1970 at my school. It was very suspenseful and shrieked when the killer was after him. Please release on DVD I will enjoy it again.
I WAS THERE WHEN THIS MOVIE WAS MADE
- john hernandez
IT FUNNY HOW THE BOY WENT FROM 105 ST. TO 103 ST. FROM ONE ROOF TO ANOTHER.
A good mystery suspense
- Linda J
I remember this film from so many years ago. My husband and I enjoy suspense movies such as this one. Please release it on DVD. Many thanks for the opportunity to voice my opinion.
An Excellent Suspense Film
Using the boy that cried wolf theme, THE WINDOW(1949),RKO films,is an excellent suspense film. Juvenile actor,Bobby Driscoll, gives a realistic performance, as does the entire cast. Well directed. The script is well written, although there are a few times at the beginning when it drags.
Bobby Driscoll's movies should be released on DVD.
HAD TO GO TO WORK....AND MISSED THE BEST PART!!!!
- BETH CONFER
Please put the movie on one more time... I had to go to work and missed the ending. it was great!!
ALWAYS LOVED IT!!
- Joe Andolina
What is it with certain movies very rarely being seen or never released on video or DVD. Especially if it is as good as "The Window"!!! I used to watch it everytime it came on TV back in the '60's, and made sure to record it onto VHS back when. My rergret is not recording it at the SP speed for quality. Would love to own a remastered DVD or even VHS. There are classics, then there are CLASSICS. The Window is a classic film in the truest sence. It still holds up well over the years. Please TCM, do not deprive others of seeing this film, put it on your list to be shown more than once or twice!!!
Bring the Window back
- Vickie Dawley
This is a great movie with much suspense. Please show it soon and not in the middle of the night where no one can see it. It is worthy.
- Joe Fritz
I have fond memories as a child watching this movie, I remember being riveted to the edge of my seat as Tommy is chased throughout the film. When can we see it again?
"THE WINDOW" Deserves Open Viewing
- Gary D. Warner
It's a wonder as to why this outstanding classic seems to be hidden from view in recent years. The absorbing, suspenseful story boasts excellent performances by a splendid cast featuring Barbara Hale of Perry Mason fame; and Bobby Driscoll's reputation precedes him as one of the finest ever child actors. The plot is a creative twist on the concept of "The Little Boy Who Cried Wolf." Tommy Woodry is a lad known for telling tall tales. His lack of credibility bedevils him after he secretly witnesses a murder. Most worthy fare for TCM programming and video release!
