    Shadow of a Doubt (Universal, 1943). Australian Daybill (13" X 30"). What do you do when your uncle is a notorious serial killer? That's the dilemma faced by young Charlie Newton (Teresa Wright) when her Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotton) comes to visit. Unbeknownst to his family, Uncle Charlie is the "Merry Widow Murderer," sought by the police. Only young Charlie suspects the truth, and she may not live long enough to tell anyone. A masterpiece by director Alfred Hitchcock, the story was based on the real life killer, Earle Leonard Nelson. This beautiful daybill shows edge wear, two small pieces missing in the left border, paper loss at the top fold, an extra crease at the bottom fold, and creasing in the left border. It is a colorful and dramatic piece, sure to please any fan of mystery and suspense. Fine+.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
