Synopsis:
When Uncle Charlie comes to visit his relatives in the sleepy town of Santa Rosa, the foundation is laid for one of his most engaging and suspenseful excursions. Joseph Cotten stars as the charming Uncle Charlie, a beguiling killer who travels from Philadelphia to California just one step ahead of the law. But soon his unknowing niece and namesake, "Young Charlie" (Teresa Wright), begins to suspect her uncle of being the Merry Widow murderer, and a deadly game of cat-and-mouse begins. As his niece draws closer to the truth, the psychopathic killer has no choice but to plot the death of his favourite relative in one of Hitchcock's most riveting psychological thrillers.

A Classic . . . Without a Doubt - Shadow of a Doubt review by Jake Mayhem

Spoiler Alert
21/09/2005

Charlie is bored. Nothing much happens in her small town. Then Uncle Charlie arrives. Suddenly life isn’t so bad. But someone should have cautioned her to ‘be careful what you wish for’. Niece and uncle, heroine and villain, are linked by name and blood. And thus are their mutual fates entwined.

Hitchcock's finest - Shadow of a Doubt review by JD

Spoiler Alert
01/09/2015

Hitchcock's daughter says in the bonus feature that this was his favourite film. It is one of his first in America. I don't think it is better than his more famous films (Psycho, Birds and Rear window) and I was not taken with the sudden switch from adoration to rejection of a niece for her uncle. Not well done and not elegent. An avarage 1943 B&W film.
