A FI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring celebrates the 50th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window with a weeklong engagement beginning with two showings today (6:40 p.m. and 9:10 p.m.). It's more than one of Hitchcock's greatest comedies of terrors. Set in a Greenwich Village apartment and its adjoining courtyards, this urban variation on the backyard-murder story is a once-over-lightly satire of the quality of modern life and a once-over-thoroughly exploration of the allure of voyeurism.

The older a man gets, the faster he could run as a boy. -- Walter "Red" Smith THIS WHIMSICAL observation by the finest sportswriter who ever tapped a keyboard comes to mind at this time of year. Each autumn, for more than 25 years, those of us lucky enough to have grown up near Easterwood Park in northwest Baltimore have come together in pleasant reunion to share gentle exaggerations. Red was right, as usual: As life's road shortens, the view through the rear window becomes more rosy.

I don't remember when I first saw "Rear Window." But clearly I was at a formative age. To this day, Alfred Hitchcock's film, which was released in 1954, remains for me an indelible, transfixing, endlessly fascinating exercise in the power of the cinema to seduce, coerce and just plain entertain. I can't tell you how many times I've seen "Rear Window," either. A dozen? Two dozen? It doesn't matter, because each time I see it, it's for the first time. Hitchcock packed so much expression and information into every single shot of the movie that it provides endlessly rewarding reading.

When Alfred Hitchcock's most famous thrillers were originally released in the 1950s and 1960s, an audience would have watched the suspense unfold at the Carroll Theatre on Main Street in Westminster. This month, classic Hitchcock films will again be shown at the theater, now the renovated Carroll Arts Center, as part of an Alfred Hitchcock Film Festival. "The series brings back an era of when this theater was hoppin'," said Sandy Oxx, executive director of the Carroll County Arts Council.
