THE GOLD RUSH (1925)—One of Charles Chaplin’s best-loved films, and the one he hoped to be remembered by.

REAR WINDOW (1954)—Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller starring James Stewart as a photographer, confined to a wheelchair by a broken leg, who spies on his neighbors from the window of his Greenwich Village apartment and discovers that one of them has committed a murder.
