My Shadow of a Doubt

When I realized I was going to be staying in Santa Rosa, CA for a few days, the setting of one of my favorite films, Shadow of a Doubt, I immediately made it a point to check out a few of the key locations used in the Hitchcock classic.

The first of which is the Newton residence. The house is pretty much the same as it was over 60 years ago- down to the detailed garage doors.



Then, of course, is onto the the famed Santa Rosa train station for the climatic scene. The station is now a visitor center for the city where a very knowledgeable historian proceeded to point out the rest of the landmarks from the film including where the grand library used to be before an earthquake caused its demise.
