Shadow of a Doubt is a 1943 psychological thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

Written by Gordon McDonell, Thornton Wilder, Sally Benson and Alma Reville, it stars Teresa Wright, Joseph Cotten, Macdonald Carey, Patricia Collinge, Henry Travers and Hume Cronyn.

Hitchcock himself often said that this was his favorite of all the films he had directed.

It has been deemed "culturally significant" by the U.S. Library of Congress. Shadow of a Doubt has also been selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

The film was remade as Step Down to Terror (1958) and also had a considerable thematic influence upon auteur David Lynch's Blue Velvet.
