"You have *got* to know something's up with those Charlies! Ugh!"<

You know I've got to disagree with you there, as we disagreed about Amy Madigan's character in 'Streets of Fire' being gay and the filmmakers supposedly kept her in the closet. It's not certain that the character McCoy was gay, but it is certain (to me, anyway) that it was irrelevant to the movie.

In 'Shadow of a Doubt', I don't think there was any such agenda to make young Charlie sexually attracted to her uncle, or vice versa. I've seen the movie eight times over the years, and have seen it with audiences of all kinds, read about subtext, and it was never occurred to me that it was an erotic bond they were going for there, subtly or not.

I've read a number of people say 'Vertigo' and 'The Birds' were Hitch working out his own sexual frustrations with women, and that 'Rope' and 'Strangers on a Train' were anti-gay films made by a guilty-feeling closeted gay director.
The sexual frustration bit may be true to an extent, but it only goes so far into understanding the movies: not very far. The repressed gay theory could be true, but simply making the gay characters murderers does not in itself make it anti-gay!
To me, these are very reductive ways of looking at the movies, and a symptom of our sex-centric culture today, and putting everything through that analytical lens tends to distort the original meaning.

I'd put 'Shadow of a Doubt' in the same class of satire as 'Fargo', an examination of an interloping evil set to the backdrop small town mores and mundanity. I don't think it was as great as 'Fargo', because it wasn't as expansive or subtle in the moral shades of grey, but considering the time in which it was made, 'Shadows' holds up well as a classic in every respect.

Q says:
JB,

I was mainly kidding about McCoy. The young Charlie just annoys the heck out of me, sexual tensions or not.

Wait a minute here...I don't think the Rope guys were gay. They certainly would be assumed so by today's standards, but not back then!

PS- Those are some of my favorite James Stewart moments. (Almost) topping Rear Window.

I am definitely not sex-centric, I assure you! Shadow is just my least favorite Hitch that I've seen so far. And that doesn't mean I hate it. I love everything Hitch does. I was watching it with my girl (err...ex-girl...I pulled a Modern Romance the other day), and she was obsessed with the weirdness between those Charlies. So it wasn't just me!! I also made her watch Rope, and neither of us had gaydar going off on Brandon and whats-his-name. Like I said earlier, by today's standards...definitely. But I think they were both just great stage actors. I love the way that Rope is set on a single stage, and is more of a play than a film(of course it was originally a play). Brandon's character is certainly over the top, but to me he just seems to be dramatizing the role as a stage actor would, which in my opinion fits perfectly, as the film is basically a play.

Sorry that was awfully redundant. I just couldn't get my dern point across! :)

Q,

I got you, I figured it was mainly a thing against her character. Personally, I took it as very interesting psychology for the movies to explore for the time, and Teresa Wright gave a remarkably good performance.
You gotta love Joseph Cotten though, no?; and Hume Cronyn as Herbie the scheming neighbor.

Re: "I don't think the Rope guys were gay."

The play was loosely based on the real-life murderers Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, who were University of Chicago students, and yes, gay. They also made a couple other movies about them: 'Compulsion' and 'Swoon'.
Were Brandon and Phillip definitely supposed to be gay in 'Rope'? That's the way I took it, but it's sure not essential to the plot, and I see no undercurrent of condemning the boys based on their lifestyle, only condemning of an ideology; it's a particularly intellectual movie for the time, and Jimmy Stewart's character is one of the most interesting of the '40s Hollywood.
Hitchcock did a great job of keeping those characters ambiguous and I agree completely about Jimmy Stewart's performance. My three favorite Stewart performances are 'Anatomy of a Murder', 'The Far Country', and 'Rope'.

>"I am definitely not sex-centric, I assure you!"<

Should I give congratulations?...no, that doesn't seem appropriate ☹ ... I'll just say again, I only meant: some of the analysis of older movies I've heard these days tend to be centered around hidden sexual subtexts, and it's only symptomatic of a culture that is sex-obsessed as ours is. I didn't mean you were, although what you said about the two Charlie's reminded me of some of these critics I've read (not in a bad way, just in an over-reaching way).

I can't look at Busby Berkeley musicals now without hearing a giddy declarations in my ear about how sexually symbolic all the dance numbers were.... it can be a little disconcerting at times!

Hey, we agree on 'Rope', that's good enough for me.
Go watch some more Hitchcock! I can't wait to hear what you've got to say about some of them. I envy your seeing some of these for the first time.
I promise you'll find some you like less than 'Shadow'. Try 'The Trouble with Harry'. It has outstanding Technicolor photography, like 'Rope' did, and I wonder if you'll like anything else about it.
Have you gotten to 'Notorious' yet? That's one I can recommend in all seriousness as the best looking of his black and white features. 'Strangers on a Train' is no slouch either.

I had no idea! Now I have to research this!

PS- I have The Trouble With Harry, and I just watched it the other day. At first I thought, "I may not like this" (it was pretty silly in the beginning), but in the end I really did like it. The color was great. I watched the special features about how they started filming in Vermont, but then a storm came and blew all of the leaves off of the trees, so Hitch made them pick all of the leaves up, transport them to Hollywood, spray paint them, and pin them onto fake trees on a set! Haha! I think the Captain was my favorite character. No, strike that, it was definitely the bumbling doctor. :)

I just saw The Man Who Knew Too Much last night. Not my favorite James Stewart, but I liked it. I want to give it a second viewing. It's one of those that you have trouble following the first go around.

I'm making it through my box set. I'm on the fence about Vertigo. To me, it doesn't live up to the hype. I hear you need to see it more than once though, so I won't judge yet. Torn Curtain also had me on the fence a bit. Still, there really aren't any that I don't like.

Haven't gotten to Notorious yet, and I'm the only one alive who hasn't seen North by Northwest. So no spoilers please.

*Don't hate me, JB! The Birds was the first Hitchcock I ever saw (for some reason we watched it in school). As a kid, it scared the crap out of me, but upon recent viewings, I am finding that I like his murder mysteries the best.

Re: "Guilty pleasure?"
I can watch 'Family Plot' again just for Bruce Dern's great performance, as I can watch 'The Trouble with Harry' for the scenery and Shirley MacLaine's adorable young self.
For I-don't-know-what-reason I feel a little guilty for having no pleasure in 'Lifeboat'. That, 'The Paradine Case' and 'Under Capricorn' are a trio of Hitchcock's dullest '40s efforts.
