Description by OLDIES.com:
Nine-year-old Tommy Woodry has a history of making things up, but he insists he really saw this: a murder in his own apartment building! No one believes Tommy's story. No one except the killers. From its taut pursuits to its sinister sense of danger lurking behind any apartment door, The Window is a minor gem of film noir. Bobby Driscoll, playing perhaps the genre's youngest protagonist, received an honorary Oscar for his portrayal of the imperiled boy. Noted cinematographer Ted Tetzlaff (Notorious) directs, ramping up the tension in this film based on a story by Cornell Woolrich (Rear Window).
A young boy, with a reputation for lying, witnesses a murder committed by his neighbors, and no one believes him. Based on the suspenseful novel "The Boy Who Cried Murder" by Cornell Woolrich. Academy Award Nominations: Best Film Editing.
This terrifying horror film examines the plight of a scared little boy who knows that killers are in his midst. Only no one will believe him... Little Tommy Woodry loves to spin fanciful yarns about the world and people around him. So when he tells his parents that the couple upstairs are murderers, they don't take him seriously at all. The police give his story more credence, and check things out, but they find nothing amiss. Only the neighbors know that Tommy's telling the truth, and they want to shut his mouth -- for good. And when Tommy's parents' insist that he go upstairs and apologize, the killers will get their chance to make sure the boy will never come back down again...
