Shadow of a Doubt (1943) Alfred Hitchcock, Teresa Wright, Joseph Cotten, Macdonald Carey

Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
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. Although one of the suspected murderers is killed and the case is considered closed, she still has her suspicions.

Uncle Charlie did it for me. I mistrusted the uncle thing as a term of endearment ever since. Joseph Cotten is the perfect charming monster. Uncle Charlie’s urbanity becomes his most frightening feature. So plausible. So real. Thornton Wilder was Hitchcock’s partner in crime this time and it shows. The structure is Our Townish, the characters, deliciously rich. Patricia Collinge’s performance is so spot on that you’re longing for more. The scenes between Henry Travers and Hume Cronyn are how I imagine the story meetings between Thornton Wilder and Alfred Hitchcock. Teresa Wright’s eyes tell the whole story from the audience’s point of view, even if the audience is one step ahead of her. Brilliant, because in Joseph Cotten’s eyes we find his need for redemption or are we falling in the trap of this master manipulator? We are torn, just like Teresa Wright. I’ve seen “Shadow of a Doubt” 3 or 4 times but every time you’re forced to take the trip with the same amount of commitment. I’ve been toying with the thought of a remake, I’ve been doing this lately, although I hate the idea of remakes of great movies, this one is one of those that in the right hands could have a real impact. Using Thornton Wilder’s original script as the Bible, Steven Sodebergh could do scrumptious remake for the new millennium. Tim Robbins as uncle Charlie, can you imagine? Natalie Portman as his niece. Joan Cusak and William H Macy as her parents. Wouldn’t you go to see that?
