Matthew Angelo has provided The Thornton Wilder Society with another engaging plot summary and critical analysis. This time his articles cover the screenplay Wilder wrote for Alfred Hitchcock’s film Shadow of a Doubt. The complete screenplay is available in Thornton Wilder: Collected Plays & Writings on Theater.
Among a variety of well researched sources, Mr. Angelo’s work utilizes the article “Wilder and Hitchcock: Writing and Re-writing Shadow of a Doubt,” an exclusive for the 2007 issue of the Thornton Wilder Society Newsletter. The first page of the article is available online in the Thornton Wilder Society Newsletter Sampler. Visit the Membership section of our website to download the sampler and learn how to receive the annual newsletter.
Joining an analysis of the infamous Uncle Charlie provided by Alex Poulos, the plot summary and critical analysis complete the Society’s online entry for Shadow of a Doubt.
