Shadow of Doubt (1943)

I always think that I won't like Hitchcock, because Hitchcock does suspense so well, and suspense makes me crazy and anxious. But, I did love this movie.

Small town girl wishes for some excitement, prays for it, gets it, in the form of big-city uncle, begins to suspect uncle of murder, plot twists, suspenseful conclusion.

It's got a smart, spunky young woman, a normal family (note, they play bridge!) a white-picket-fence town and a cute FBI agent for the spunky young woman to meet.

Three stars, will watch again (but not as much as a movie without all the suspense!).
