Miss Torso Georgine Darcy Voyeur Delight and the Ultimate New York Film Vintage Sleaze




One of the greatest films ever made, certainly in my top five list, and a voyeur's dream. Not that I am a voyeur, but when it was reissued in crispy color for theaters back in the 1980s I did see it twice. Rear Window in a theater is not to be missed.

It is also the most romantic New York film ever...I had that backyard for 24 years, but my "Miss Torso" lived over on the 6th floor and I was on the third, so I had to go on the roof to see her.
Plus my bodies weren't dumped in the backyard, they were thrown in the railroad ravine a few feet over and done by the Irish Hell's Kitchen gang "The Westies" not Raymond Burr in powdered grey hair. (Who would later draw on his acting experience in Rear Window as Chief Ironsides!)

Yes, Miss Torso. The blond woman with muscular thighs who kept diverting Jimmy from the task at hand much to the delight of male ticket holders. Guess what?
Miss Torso wasn't a dream, she was Georgine Darcy!

Now the video "screen-grab" was invented for Miss Torso, everyone knows that...but how much do you know about Georgine? Well, unfortunately she passed away in 2004, the last living member of the cast. She was born in Brooklyn, so dancing in the window presumably came natural to her. At the time of Rear Window, the busty ballet dancing beauty had a 21 inch waist. Alfred must have required plenty of takes.



Other film credits include "Don't Knock the Twist" 8 years later, she was still hot. Ten years after that, she was on the TV show Mannix, still hot.

Now Hitchcock had some kind of problem with women...he liked them blond and being attacked. I don't know why, that is an issue for film scholars and his shrink. But on MY highlights reel, Miss Torso would kick her legs up over and over...

Of course, the film made an impression on the sleazemeisters too...note the paperback here by Don Holliday. Unfortunately, the illustrator made Jimmy Stewart look more like Rudy Guliani without a t-shirt.

In the trailer here, Miss Torso swings her hips at around 1:30. Don't blink...and please rewind.
