Evils in Our Midst: A Close Reading of Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
Audio recording of a lecture given by Jeffrey Stout on December 8, 2023 as part of the Dean's Lecture & Concert Series. The Dean's Office has provided this description of the event: "What is the movie about? Does the title contain an allusion? When is the story set? What film genres are at work and why? Why are there two Charlies? How did Uncle Charlie and his sister become so close? Why are there so many soldiers in town? What do the Freudian symbols and the biblical quotation mean? Was Hitchcock rejecting or affirming his Catholic upbringing and Jesuit schooling? Was he an amoralist or a moralist?"
