A bored young woman, a teen living in Santa Rosa, California, Charlotte “Charlie” Newton (Wright), is frustrated because nothing seems to be happening in her life and that of her family. Then, she receives wonderful news: her uncle (for whom she was named), Charlie Oakley (Cotten), is arriving for a visit. But Uncle Charlie may not be the man he seems to be.

A pretty sinister film noir from Hitchcock that I’d never seen before, amazingly. Cotten plays a great nihilistic killer and there are some excellent scenes including a few shadowy staircase shots and the opening chase scene.
