This film is François Truffaut’s homage to Alfred Hitchcock, made shortly after Truffaut had published a book of extensive interviews with Hitchcock. As part of his homage, Truffaut chose a novel written by Cornell Woolrich, on who’s story Hitchcock’s Rear Window was based, and even chose long-time Hitchcock collaborator Bernard Herrmann to compose the score.
Although Kill Bill by Quentin Tarantino tells a very similar story, Tarantino has stated that he has never seen the film.
