Books and movies are two completely different mediums in which audiences can enjoy a story. They seem different when one thinks about it, and it is true. Numerous points come to mind when we contrast a volume and its featured motion picture. However, both have several similarities than neutralize the differences.

The most climatic scenes happened towards the end of the movie when Lisa decided to enter Thorwald’s apartment without Jeff's approval. While the plot is very similar in the short story, we didn’t have a Lisa in that version so the plot was completely centered around Thorwald and Jeff’s obsession on solving the murder.

Although, it was probably the best for them in the end, it was still emotional for the both of them.
