Based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier, the classic psychological thriller Rebecca was Alfred Hitchcock's first American film. Joan Fontaine plays the unnamed narrator, a young woman who works as a companion to the well-to-do Mrs. Van Hopper (Florence Bates). She meets the wealthy widower Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier) in Monte Carlo, where they fall in love and get married. Maxim takes his new bride to Manderlay, a large country estate in Cornwall. However, the mansion's many servants refuse to accept her as the new lady of the house. They seem to be loyal to Maxim's first wife, Rebecca, who died under mysterious circumstances. Particularly cruel to her is the prim housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson), who is obsessed with Rebecca. She continually attests to her beauty and virtues (referring to her as "the real Mrs. de Winter") and even preserves her former bedroom as a shrine. The new Mrs. de Winter is nearly driven to madness as she begins to doubt her relationship with her husband and the presence of Rebecca starts to haunt her. Eventually, an investigation leads to the revelation about Rebecca's true nature. Producer David O. Selznickhad the final cut of the picture, which was drastically altered fromHitchcock's original vision.

  1. A Must See Movie 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 12th 2017

    It's Alfred Hitchcock at his best. Twisted love story of the good old past. The copy purchased works great. A movie worth watching over again any time.


  2. here's looking at you kid! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 25th 2016

    This movie is an excellent love story based on the old school rules. However, you have a mix of larceny. Let me not tease you buy it for yourself. Excellent copy and sound tract.
    Lord Olivier and Ms. Fontaine are great along with a fine supporting cast.
    Zeus I'll be buying from you soon.
