Ever since I started teaching Film Studies I've been excited to see how much great cinema, regardless of its era, still enthralls and engages students. One of my absolute favorite films, Rear Window, had my high school students on the edge of their seats in the climatic moment. Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece is a perfect demonstration of the Kuleshov Effect used to perfection. By the time my students got to the scene below, they were so focused and anxious that they were talking to the screen. If you know the film, you know exactly what scene I'm talking about.
