Chicago Film Club Screening "Shadow of a Doubt" with Discussion
Shadow of a Doubt (1942) Alfred Hitchcock's personal favorite of all his films is packed with heart-pounding suspense and truly amazing performances. When Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotton) visits his sister's family in Santa Rosa, his niece and namesake "Young Charlie" (Teresa Wright) begins to suspect that he may be the "Merry Widow Murderer," wanted by the authorities hot on his trail. As Young Charlie's suspicions about her uncle prove to be true, she has a tough decision to make. Will she report her uncle to the detectives that are tailing him or will she let him get away with murder? With a unique mixture of charm and menace, Cotton's characterization is one of the creepiest in the history of film. Considered Hitchcock's first great American film, it features an extraordinary supporting cast that includes, MacDonald Carey, Patricia Collinge, Henry Travers, Wallace Ford, and Hume Cronyn, in his very first screen role. Shadow of a Doubt also has the distinction of being the only film Hitchcock made on location.
