Auszeichnungen & Festivals

Academy Awards

1944 | Nominiert: Best Writing, Original Story

Sardonic details bubble up through the town’s veneer of brisk cheer to suggest the roiling passions it represses; in Hitchcock’s ironic vision, marriage is a haven from the mortal power of lust, and Santa Rosa is just one misstep away from Pottersville.

Maybe Hitchcock’s first perfect film? Maybe his most perfect, too? Oh yeah, you can’t have degrees of perfection, can you? But maybe Hitchcock can. Absolutes become relative… SHADOW OF A DOUBT begins with the Universal globe, since like SABOTEUR this is a project made on loan-out to the free and easy Jack Skirball from the rigorous Selznick, and its brilliance should be enough to gainsay the suggestion that Hitchcock needed Selznick’s supervision to make mature films.

Despite being his sixth Hollywood production, Shadow of a Doubt is the picture where Hitchcock first discovered America, locating the mirror image for the ominous instability lurking barely an inch under the cozy surfaces of his native England. . . . The difference between Shadow of a Doubt and a hectoring good-versus-evil tract such as Watch on the Rhine that same year, however, lies in the way Hitch sees darkness as less an infiltrating outside force than as the repressed backside of normalcy.
