Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
I'd murder you so it didn't look like murder.
So basically: Charlie is bored of her small town and wants to invite her Uncle Charlie, who she is named after and shares a special bond with, to visit. Little does she know, Uncle Charlie is already on his way, but on the run from the police. Two cops aren't far behind him, either.
Not one of Hitchcock's best, in my opinion; Rope should have been higher than this. The first time I watched this was much better than the second time, which I think is the fault with this picture. The father and his best friend were defs my favourite part with their constant babbling about how they might commit murder - they added a very humorous touch. You should check this out if you're a fan of Hitchcock, but otherwise, skip this film.
This one shouldn't be on the list, unfortunately.
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
