He later goes to a movie theater that him and his father frequently go to. At that same movie theater there is a girl that works at the concession stand that Andrew is attracted to, and each time he goes to the movie theater he never has the confidence to ask her out on a date or confidently start a conversation with her. This time it is different, when Andrew goes up to talk to her he talks to her with more confidence, and works up the courage to ask her out on a date.

This is ironic, since Jeff tends to avoid intimacy with Lisa, but is content to observe Miss Torso’s intimacies. She has several suitors throughout the film, and seems to be happily promiscuous. Miss Torso also projects Jeff’s apparently cruel and sadistic side. When she is attacked after refusing one suitor’s advances, Jeff, who has become accustomed to recording violence without intervening, just acts as a spectator and feels no need to help or stop looking. Miss Lonely Hearts represents Lisa’s fear of one potential future.
A song then introduces happy moments for most characters including Max’s participation in a pre-basketball match entertainment. The song represents the happy moods from one scene to another for a while. It helps in enforcing the story of a happy young man who becomes sad after losing the woman’s love to his friend. The natural sounds of ambulances and police cars sirens are so deafening that it is difficult to hear what Max tells Mrs. Blume leaving the audience to decide on what transpired. However, it becomes clear when Mrs. Blume files for a divorce.
When I was watching the movie, I noted how Andie portrayed the typical needy, emotional, and clingy girlfriend. She is representing what a normal girlfriend is expected to be. Another idea that I found interesting was when Andie was at the basketball game and she played clueless and uninterested in the game, when in reality she enjoyed watching basketball games. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Benjamin had claimed to his coworkers that he could get any woman to fall in love with him in 10 days.

As previously stated, Stella is obviously the voice of reason in Rear Window, and urges Jeffries to marry Lisa. She tells him that, "when two people love each other, they come together - WHAM - like two taxis on Broadway". Hitchcock likely thought that as possibly the most sensible character in the film, Stella's attitude to class should be just as sensible. Jeffries' initial reluctance to marry Lisa because he can't see her being adventurous and accompanying him on his work trips abroad is shown to be invalid and shortsighted, which indicates that Hitchcock thought of such attitudes as baseless. Lisa proves on multiple occasions that she can be daring and get things done, all while wearing the expensive dresses she likes.

In the 1930’s, kids only knew what they saw, so most of the time their role models came from their hometown.
