See the psychological thriller Hitchcock believed to be his finest film. SHADOW OF A DOUBT, starring Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten, turns 75 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.
TREASURES SCREENINGS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
