Screening of "Shadow of a Doubt" with discussion afterward

Shadow of a Doubt (1943) Alfred Hitchcock’s personal favorite of all his films is packed with heart-pounding suspense and truly amazing performances. When Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotton) visits his sister’s family in Santa Rosa, his niece and namesake “Young Charlie” (Teresa Wright) begins to suspect that he may be the “Merry Widow Murderer,” wanted by the authorities hot on his trail. As Young Charlie’s suspicions about her uncle prove to be true, she has a tough decision to make. Will she report her uncle to the detectives that are tailing him or will she let him get away with murder? With a unique mixture of charm and menace, Cotton’s characterization is one of the creepiest in the history of film. Considered Hitchcock’s first great American film, it features an extraordinary supporting cast that includes, MacDonald Carey, Patricia Collinge, Henry Travers, Wallace Ford, and Hume Cronyn, in his very first screen role. Shadow of a Doubt also has the distinction of being the only film Hitchcock made on location.

    Learn so much about film each time I attend. I love the discussions before and after. Stephen is so knowledgeable about film, as well, as the other film buffs. It is just a pleasure to attend. Thanks, Stephen for your dedication to film and to the community.

    As usual, we had a great discussion with a group of very well educated classic film scholars. And you can never go wrong with Hitchcock!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
