The Window (1949), directed by Ted Tetzlaff and produced by Frederic Ullman Jr., is a dramatic thriller based on the suspense novel "The Boy Who Cried Murder" by Cornell Woolrich. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Film Editing the same year of its release. In this black and white film, a nine-year-old boy's reputation for lying precedes him even when he is telling the truth. The boy, Tommy Woodry (Bobby Driscoll), learns his lesson about lying after he witnesses a murder while peering through his neighbor's apartment window. His parents (Arthur Kennedy and Barbara Hale) do not believe his claim and punish him for going too far with his tall tales, while the police dismiss his story after their quick investigation yields no evidence. The movie progresses as Tommy attempts to find a way to expose the truth while keeping himself from the grips of his murderous neighbors, the Kellersons (Paul Stewart and Ruth Roman).
