Wright is the first out of only nine players who have been nominated in both categories in the same year. In , Wright appeared in the acclaimed Universal film Shadow of a Doubt , directed by Alfred Hitchcock , playing an innocent young woman who discovers her beloved uncle played by Joseph Cotten is a serial murderer.
Hitchcock thought Wright was one of the most intelligent actors he had worked with, and through his direction brought out her vivacity, warmth, and youthful idealism—characteristics uncommon in Hitchcock's heroines.
Critic James Agee praised her performance in The Nation :. This new performance of hers, entirely lacking in big scenes, tricks, or obstreperousness—one can hardly think of it as acting—seems to me one of the wisest and most beautiful pieces of work I have seen in years.
If the picture had none of the hundreds of other things it has to recommend it, I could watch it a dozen times over for that personality and its mastery alone.
The moody "Freudian western" was written by her first husband Niven Busch. The following year, she starred with David Niven, Farley Granger, and Evelyn Keyes in Enchantment , a story of two generations of lovers in parallel romances.
Wright received glowing reviews for her performance. Newsweek commented: "Miss Wright, one of the screen's finest, glows as the Cinderella who captivated three men.
In December , after rebelling against the studio system that brought her fame, Teresa Wright had a public falling out with Samuel Goldwyn, which resulted in the cancellation of Wright's contract with his studio.
In a statement published in The New York Times , Goldwyn cited as reasons her refusal to publicize the film Enchantment , and her being "uncooperative" and refusing to "follow reasonable instructions".
I would like to say that I never refused to perform the services required of me; I was unable to perform them because of ill health.
I accept Mr. Goldwyn's termination of my contract without protest—in fact, with relief. The types of contracts standardized in the motion picture industry between players and producers are archaic in form and absurd in concept.
I am determined never to set my name to another one I have worked for Mr. Goldwyn seven years because I consider him a great producer, and he has paid me well, but in the future I shall gladly work for less if by doing so I can retain my hold upon the common decencies without which the most glorified job becomes intolerable.
On February 8, , Wright was inducted to the Hollywood Walk of Fame with two stars: one for motion pictures at Vine Street and one for television at Hollywood Boulevard.
In , Wright appeared in the Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman , and in , appeared in the revival of Morning's at Seven , for which she won a Drama Desk Award as a member of the Outstanding Ensemble Performance.

Her daughter, Mary-Kelly, is an author of books for children and young adults. In , Smith accompanied Wright to Yankee Stadium when she was invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch.
It was her first visit to the stadium. Wright's appearance in Pride of the Yankees had sparked an interest in baseball and led her to become a Yankees fan.
Upon Wright's death in , when the roll call of former Yankees who had died was announced at Old Timer's Day on July 5, , her name was read among the ballplayers and members of the Yankees family.
