Alfred Hitchcock's favorite Alfred Hitchcock film is also my favorite. Shadow of a Doubt has no innocent man wrongly accused, no MacGuffins, no icy blonde vixens or devil birds, and no fancy camera tricks. It has all the raw power of the late Hitchcock masterpieces, but instead of exotic locales and million-dollar sets, the main action of the film takes place in a modest, suburban home and the most tense moments come at a dinner table.
