SHADOW OF A DOUBT

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

See the psychological thriller Hitchcock believed to be his finest film. SHADOW OF A DOUBT, starring Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten, turns 70 this year, and we mark the occasion with a 35mm screening of what Dave Kehr described as Hitchcock’s “first indisputable masterpiece.” In the words of Richard Brody, SHADOW OF A DOUBT “peels back the welcoming warmth and sincere innocence of small-town life to reveal the gullibility and the naïveté underneath; it’s a fiction about the perpetuation of fictions.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow, ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
