Rear Window #2
Thorvald arrives home while Lisa is inside his apartment looking for evidence. What is it about Grace Kelly? I'm not talking about the sensuality kept in check by good breeding yada yada, I'm talking about her sadness. She's not a great actress, that is, you don't completely buy Lisa as a fleshed-out character, but Kelly's melancholy works in conveying Lisa's unenviable situation as "the perfect woman" ignored by Jeff for his telephoto lens. In the end, by breaking and entering, nearly getting strangled, and hauled away by the police, as observed by Jeff, she wins him. A victory?
