    I found it in an anthology, and had no idea it was what the film was based on, then I recognized it as I started reading it.

      Was it very different? I knew Rear Window was based on a short story, but that's about all I knew. So many things seem to be based on or derived from something else, it's really interesting. I think even Shakespeare did it! And I used to dance around the room with my infant son on my shoulder to Carl Orff's Street Song, never realizing until many years later that that the song was used in several movies, including Badlands!

      I never sought out Woolrich's story. I'll have to try to find it now - and watch Rear Window again :)

        I don't recall how much like the film it was. I need to find it and re-read it.
