Here are ten valuable Shadow of a Doubt movie posters and collectibles that should please Alfred Hitchcock fans and movie memorabilia collectors. "The cities are full of women, middle-aged widows, husbands, dead, husbands who've spent their lives making fortunes, working and working. And then they die and leave their money to their wives, their silly wives. And what do the wives do, these useless women? You see them in the hotels, the best hotels, every day by the thousands, drinking the money, eating the money, losing the money at bridge, playing all day and all night, smelling of money, proud of their jewelry but of nothing else, horrible, faded, fat, greedy women..." Joseph Cotten as the sociopathic Charlie Oakley
