Joseph Cotton is "Uncle Charlie", charming and suave, who stays for a while with his sister and family in Santa Rosa, California; his niece, also named Charlie, grows suspicious at his behavior. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Story; entered 1991 into the National Film Registry. Of his own films, this was Hitchcock's favorite.

Review by Anon (posted on 30-Sep-2007)
Alfred Hitchcock at his best. Actors are superbly cast. The plot twist and turns as Joseph Cotten both charms the locals and terrifies his namesake niece, Theresa Wright. Her adoration turns to revulsion upon discovering his secret life. The ending has you sitting on the edge of your seat. A movie you can see over and over again and still see something new. A must see for all Hitchcock and mystery fans.
