Four Unforgettable Windows
By ice rivers
4) The Hollies singing "look through any window".
3) James Stewart looking through the Rear Window and catching Raymond Burr.
2) Holden Caulfield looking into apartment windows in New York City and catching a couple spitting water into each other's mouths.
and NUMBER ONE
1) Father Damien smashing through the Georgetown window at the conclusionof The Exorcist.
The question remains. When Damien went through the window was it a defenestration? Does it count as a defenestration if you hurl yourself through a window or is it just a suicide? The question becomes pricklier when we try to figure who threw what out or what threw whom out. Did damien throw himself out to kill the demon or did the demon throw Damien out to cast him into hell?
I went to a Jesuit high school.
I like to think that Damien defenestrated the demon.
