"Shadow of Doubt" is a mystery picture with interesting components. There is, first off, Constance Collier who gradually emerges as the picture's feisty detective-heroine. This is very much unexpected because she's a wealthy recluse whose amusements are playing organ and cribbage with her butler. Ricardo Cortez is her nephew. His acting is something I never can quite pin down. Usually he seems amused, confident and glib. For another excellent example in a good movie, see him in "Bunco Squad" (1950). Regis Toomey has a bigger part than his usual character roles. Isabel Jewell plays a singer, and her song is very good, beside her speaking role. Virginia Bruce is exotic as usual. Two policemen enter the proceedings, the gruff Paul Hurst and the more comical and understanding Edward Brophy. The picture has the MGM gloss. The IMDb rating of 6.4 is about right, and the existing positive reviews nail down the picture's merits.
