SHADOW OF A DOUBT (1943)
Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten)-to Teresa Wright (Charlie Newton)
“You think you know something, don’t you? You think you’re the clever little girl who knows something. There’s so much you don’t know… so much. What do you know really? You’re just an ordinary little girl living in an ordinary little town. You wake up every morning of your life and you know perfectly well that there’s nothing in the world to trouble you. You go though your ordinary little day and at night you sleep your untroubled, ordinary little sleep filled with peaceful, stupid dreams… and I brought you nightmares.”
Your EverLovin Joey saying there’s not a shadow of a doubt that I’ll be back with a more indepth look at Hitchcock’s masterpiece of psychological terror!

Hitch’s fave of his own films. LOVE the opening in Jersey City. Looking forward to your in depth look. Not a shadow of a doubt that it will be engrossing and entertaining!
Of course, even as a great film, every time I read the words “Uncle Charlie” I see William Demarest in My Three Sons, or even funnier, his painful-looking pratfalls in The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek or worse, his over the top performance with Joan Blondell in that icky Twilight Zone episode “What’s in the Box?” where they both beat the heck out of each other in one of the less effective episodes.
SUCH a good film. Joseph Cotten was the perfect casting choice.
