|Shadow of a Doubt (Alfred Hitchcock, 1943)
Our September theme of The Mysterious Stranger got off to a great start as double-digit
attendees enjoyed Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt (1943) starring Teresa Wright as
Young Charlie and Joseph Cotton as her Uncle Charlie. He is a stranger to his own family in
that he is the Merry Widow Murderer and they don't know it. The director stated that this
was his favorite film of the 53 he directed in 51 years. Humor, tension, optimal use of camera
all add up to that Hitchcock wow factor. All enjoyed the film. Merriment continued at the
Ridge Diner. An enjoyable experience.
|Bell, Book & Candle (1958)
Before our feature film, Bell, Book & Candle, we paid homage to Tom Petty, who had passed
on Monday. We played his videos for You Got Lucky (1982) and Mary Jane's Last Dance
(1993). Truly one of music's greats. We then began our month's theme of spells by showing
the 1958 film Bell Book & Candle starring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. Stewart and Novak
had just completed Vertigo for Alfred Hitchcock, then went right on to do this film together.
Novak bewitches Stewart to fall in love with her, but hesitates falling in love with him
because it will cause her to lose her powers. Only attendee Tina had seen it previously; all
enjoyed the film. Conversation continued at the Ridge Diner. Fun evening.
