Shadow of a Doubt
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1943, 108 mins. 35mm. With Teresa Wright, Joseph Cotten, Macdonald Carey. When a bored high school student Charlie (Wright) wills her namesake uncle (Cotten) to pay the family a visit, she gets more than she bargained for, not realizing that the deceptive charmer is a homicidal maniac. “Do you know if you ripped the fronts off houses you’d find swine?” asks her
dangerous doppelgänger. Written by Thornton Wilder (Our Town) and Sally Benson (Meet Me in St. Louis), this was Hitchcock’s favorite among his own films.
