Shadow of a Doubt

When the police assume that they have caught the 'Merry Widow Murderer', Uncle Charlie decides to go back home for a while. On the train, young Charlie (who still suspects that her uncle is the real 'Merry Widow Murderer) & her siblings go on board to see Uncle Charle's room/cabin, but as the kids leave, Uncle Charlie grabs young Charlie and tries to throw her off the train. But young Charlie moves out of the way and pushes uncle Charlie off the train, who is then killed when another train going the opposite direction crushs him.

Big Evil

Visible crew/equipment: As the car/cab pulls out in the scene where the group leaves for Uncle Charlie's speech a man is seen disappearing around the right side of the house, but no one is supposed to be there but Young Charlie.

Suggested correction: The person who disappears may be a neighbor who is going to a walk. Why is not supposed to be at night near the house? There's no sense to support that idea.

Young Charlie: No. Room enough for everyone.
Uncle Charlie: Well, I'm glad to hear that. The show's been running such a long time, I thought maybe attendance might be falling off.
