Jeff was involved in an accident that made him end up in a wheelchair. He had nothing else to do than to look out his balcony to see what was going on in his neighborhood. Jeff is a photographer which means he has to travel around capturing important events. While he did this, Lisa only stayed in New York city for her job. This was a problem for their relationship because Lisa always stayed in the local area and was too perfect for Jeff. He believed that Lisa couldn't do what he does because his life was too much for her.
Lisa Carol Fremont
Lisa wants to get married and have a family with Jeff, but Jeff says she is too perfect for him. Even when Lisa tells him that she can change for him and make things work out, but he still says it's not going to work. It seems like he doesn't pay much attention to her until the end where she helps him try to solve the crime committed by Mr. Thorwald.
Mr. Thorwald is the one who murdered his wife. He sees women as sex symbols because of how he treated his wife. He shows that he could easily take control over her and live by himself. They would always get into arguments and fights.
Lisa Carol Fremont
Ms. Lonelyheart is always alone and has no companion. She is always sad and depressed. Jeff can see her through his balcony that she pretends to be with someone to make herself feel better. She represents that women need a man to keep them company and happy.

Ms.Torso is an obvious sex symbol because of how men look at her. She is always dancing and is not afraid of what others think of her. Jeff can be seen several times glancing at her.
