Cornell Woolrich reinvented suspense fiction for the 20th Century. During four decades, hundreds of his stories appeared in popular American pulp magazines while motion picture directors as varied as Hitchcock and Truffaut memorably translated into such classic films as Rear Window and The Bride Wore Black. Woolrich died alone in a Manhattan hotel room in 1968.
