  1. As mentioned in the curator's note, this scene operates as a prelude to the main story. What do learn about the character of Uncle Charlie in this prelude? Be specific. He is wanted by the police. They don't know what he looks like. He has money. In what ways does this opening remind you of watching a film noir? If it doesn't remind you of a film noir, what makes the opening here different from the opening of a noir film like Siodmak's The Killers? (Note: If you haven't seen The Killers, it is fine to answer this question in general terms about your own personal expectations) The shadows, someone being hunted by the police, and the voice over. As we move into Hitchcock's Hollywood years, his scores will take on more importance than they did during the British years. Music will play a big role in Shadow of a Doubt. The film's score is by Dimitri Tiomkin, the first of four film scores that the composer will create for Hitchcock. What effect does the Tiomkin score have on the mood, atmosphere, and even the pace of this opening scene? It is vital to the the mood/atmosphere of a film. It helps to inform the audience something is about to happen or if the feel/mood is shifting. It helps to build tension and whatever mood is needed at the time.

    Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

    You can find it on youtube. It is broken up into segments. I found them all but the ending - pretty frustrating.

    Best Haunted House Movie?

    Having just seen THE CHANGELING for the first time last night... I would agree that it is probably one of the best haunted house movies. It was pretty creepy!!
