Seasonal Special Happenings

Skerry Stuff

When: Thu., Jan. 16 2014

Director Alfred Hitchcock has said he considers 1943's Shadow of a Doubt to be his best work. Co-written by playwright and novelist Thornton Wilder, the film centers on Charlotte "Charlie" Newton (Teresa Wright), a teenager living in sleepy Santa Rosa, Calif. Her life gets upended when her Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten), a suspect in a murder case, comes to live with her and her mother (Patricia Collinge). A terrific psychological thriller, the movie is a true classic. Dr. Phillip J. Skerry, a Lakeland Community College professor who has just published a book about Hitchcock, will host a discussion after tonight's screening at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. The movie shows at 6:45 and tickets are $9. (Jeff Niesel)
