Prytania Theatre to show Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt for Halloween

Posted By on Fri, Oct 26, 2012 at 12:52 PM

It may not be the first movie people think of when Halloween comes around. But Alfred Hitchcock's early masterpiece Shadow of a Doubt provides just the kind of true-to-life psychological fright that puts most modern horror movies to shame. Co-written by Thornton Wilder — the three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Our TownShadow of a Doubt serves up a slice of small-town American family life interrupted by the arrival of an eccentric uncle who may be the "Merry Widow Murderer" hunted by police. It's no surprise that Hitchcock was quoted more than once describing Shadow of a Doubt as his "favorite" among the 50+ feature films he directed.

The Prytania will show Shadow of a Doubt at 10 a.m. this Sunday, Oct. 28, and again at 10 a.m. on Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31.
