#558 Shadow of a Doubt
Shadow of a Doubt is about a girl named Charlie who is very excited about her uncle coming to visit, also named Charlie. He is apparently everyone's favorite person, and for some reason has a couple detectives looking for him. At first I thought that this man was an impostor who was just pretending to be Charlie. Girl Charlie mentions that he looks different, and I didn't see anything about this man for this family to get excited about. I was wrong, however. He does indeed turn out to be Uncle Charlie, and Uncle Charlie also happens to be a murderer who kills widows and steals their money. Girl Charlie finds out about this, but for some reason she doesn't tell anyone, and this almost gets her killed twice. The second time, Uncle Charlie tries to push her off of a train, but she manages to save herself, and its the uncle who dies. He not only falls off the train, but we see another train coming as well, so he also gets ran over. Ouch.
Fun fact: In the Woody Allen movie "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," Vicky sees a movie with a guy from her Spanish class, and I always wondered what it was, and now I know! They went to see Shadow of a Doubt. They show the train scene from the movie right before Uncle Charlie tries to push Girl Charlie off.
