shadow of a doubt

Apparently this 1943 film by Alfred Hitchcock was his personal favourite, but l can't see why. Obviously it has dated a lot but even so...

'Charlie', who is bored and a female teenager (always going to be dodgy), has her (she thinks) cool uncle come to stay with the family. He is however, being followed by two detectives posing as reporters. This is because they suspect he may be a grannie/old lady killer. I won't give the ending away, but l was disappointed at the end and felt it was an easy ending to take. Not scary, not a lot of suspense.....bloody Hitchcock, overrated if you ask me.
