"Vertigo" had more nuanced storytelling and "Psycho" burrowed deeper into its main character's psychological disarray, but many still regard 1943's "Shadow of a Doubt" as the seminal Alfred Hitchcock film. The movie follows a murderer on the lam (Joseph Cotten) visiting his relatives in Santa Rosa, Calif. and forming a strange bond with his rebellious niece (Teresa Wright). As she grows increasingly suspicious of her uncle's motives, the young woman must reconcile her personal allegiances with a higher sense of moral responsibility, a struggle marvelously rendered by Mondo artist Alan Hynes in this bleakly expressionistic poster.
