Old Cantonese Movie - 後窗

I love old Cantonese Movies, especially those black & white ones (粵語長片). I used to be able to watch them on TV a few years back when they were aired normally in the dead of the night but not anymore. Found some of these clips on YouTube & thought I should share them with all those who love old Cantonese movies like I do.

This movie, 《後窗》 ~ 香港版 (1955), was an adaptation of the 1954 suspense film "Rear Window" directed by Alfred Hitchcock, which starred James Stewart & Grace Kelly. This Cantonese version featured the late 張瑛 & 周珅玲 and you can also see some old Cantonese movie stars like 盧敦、黃曼梨、馬師曾 、吳楚帆、白雪仙、芳艷芬 & 李清. Briefly, the movie is about the male lead who's recuperating from a broken leg and confined to a wheelchair in his small apartment. He passes the time by spying on his neighbours through his apartment's rear window and of course, he witnessed something one day...

I've watched both the English & Cantonese versions and enjoyed them both. This is one of my favourite 粵語長片. Hope you'll like it too.


  1. Nice movie. Always thot pa looks a bit like him in his youth.

  2. Yes! You know, I was just thinking the same the other day when I posted this. I thought I was the only one who thought so but it seems I'm not alone! I think it's the 'curry puff' think so? ;)
