The Woman in the Window is a thriller in the new tradition of Double Indemnity and Laura. It fails to reach the standard of either because it lacks the courage of its murderous conclusions to an extent only fully revealed by a disappointing ending.

For much of its brisk running time, The Woman in the Window plays like another balls-to-the-wall gem from the rarely-less-than-masterful Fritz Lang.

Plays out with frightening, gripping logic, each new step and new realization suddenly appearing like a cold sweat.

The Woman in the Window is mostly notable as a dry run for the following year's Scarlet Street.

The resultant tone of The Woman in the Window is completely unremitting, until it hilariously does remit.

Robinson's performance and Lang's interest in the wider picture make for compelling viewing.

The Woman in the Window is a humdinger of a mystery melodrama.

It's not merely a dazzling piece of suspense, but also a characteristically stark demonstration of Lang's belief in the inevitability of fate.

In Fritz Lang's cinema, passion may burn, but it leaves traces.
