Screened in conjunction with our Living Room Film Club: Hitchcock Scholar Christina Lane, Thu, Dec 10, 7pm. Lane is author of Phantom Lady: Hollywood Producer Joan Harrison, the Forgotten Woman Behind Hitchcock, released earlier this year by Chicago Review Press. Joan Harrison worked on SHADOW OF A DOUBT as Hitchcock's assistant, and according to her obituary, as a writer, though she is not credited for that work. She served as a writer for REBECCA, FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT, SUSPICION, SABOTEUR and more. Register for this free virtual discussion here. 

When Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten) comes to visit the Newton family, his niece (Teresa Wright) begins to suspect that he may in fact be the “Merry Widow Murderer.” Often regarded as Hitchcock’s earliest classic and sometimes mentioned as his personal favorite, the film refined the director’s mastery at interlacing character and suspense while also maintaining a taut economy to the storytelling.
