She wishes something exciting would happen and knows exactly what they need: a visit from her sophisticated and much traveled uncle Charlie Oakley, her mother’s younger brother. Imagine her delight when, out of the blue, they receive a telegram from uncle Charlie announcing that he is coming to visit them for awhile. Charlie Oakley creates quite a stir and charms the ladies club as well as the bank president where his brother-in-law works. Young Charlie begins to notice some odd behavior on his part, such as cutting out a story in the local paper about a man who marries and then murders rich widows. When two strangers appear asking questions about him, she begins to imagine the worst about her dearly beloved uncle Charlie.
Plot: A bored teen living in Santa Rosa, California, Charlotte “Charlie” Newton, is frustrated because nothing seems to be happening in her life and that of her family. Then, she receives wonderful news: her uncle (for whom she was named), Charlie Oakley, is arriving for a visit. But Uncle Charlie may not be the man he seems to be.

Joseph Cotten in One of His Finest Performances
A young woman (Teresa Wright) discovers her visiting “Uncle Charlie” (Joseph Cotten) may not be the man he seems to be.
This is classic Hitchcock, and one of Joseph Cotten’s finest roles, which is quite a compliment considering how great Cotten is/was. He is dark, misanthropic, misogynistic, and keeps you guessing. That is the beauty of this film: you will debate with yourself Charlie’s true identity (maybe he really is who he says he is).
The film has a good deal of suspense, and solid performances from everyone involved. I do not think this is one of Hitchcock’s most well-known films, and I am sorry about that. For me, it ranks above “Rebecca” in his catalog. Really a fine film and worth seeing again.
My least favourite Hitchcock movie so far.
Pursued by the police, shifty Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten) skips town to stay with his sister’s family in tranquil Santa Rosa, but it’s not long before his beautiful niece, Young Charlie (Teresa Wright), begins to suspect that the new house-guest is a right wrong’un.
Shadow of a Doubt was apparently Hitchcock’s favourite of all his own films, which I fail to understand: while many of the director’s movies grab hold and don’t let go till the end credits, this one took me several evenings to get through, which is indicative of just how mundane I found it. Certain potentially interesting themes—the sexual tension between Charlie and her uncle and the notion of evil lurking unsuspected in American suburbia—amount to very little and the manner in which the film unfolds is surprisingly dull, the whole affair lacking Hitch’s usual excellent pacing, masterful storytelling and visual flair.
Wright is a delight to behold and Cotten makes for a genuinely creepy villain but overall I found the film to be far from Hitchcock’s best work.
