Poster for the film SHADOW OF A DOUBT

Shadow of a Doubt

Part of our Cinema Studies program

Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten) visits his relatives in Santa Rosa. He is a very charming man, but his niece slowly realizes that he is wanted for murder, and he soon recognizes her suspicions. Even after one of the suspected murderers is killed and the case is considered closed, she still has her suspicions.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt will be accompanied by a lecture from Jeff Hughes, graduate student in the Cinema Studies department at NYU Tisch.

"Shadow of a Doubt may or may not be Hitchcock's greatest film, but it's his most intimate and heart-wrenching."
David Denby, New Yorker
