About the film: 

Features a Hitchcock cameo around the 16min mark. Can you spot the master himself?

A bored teen living in Santa Rosa, California, Charlotte “Charlie” Newton is frustrated with her mundane life. Then, she receives wonderful news: her favorite uncle (for whom she was named), Charlie Oakley, is arriving for a visit. Despite his charms, it becomes clear that Uncle Charlie has a dark secret.

In a 1964 Telescope interview with Fletcher Markle, Hitchcock agreed that Shadow of a Doubt (1943) was his “finest film.” He later disputed claims that it was his favorite, but the tagline stuck.
