ITEM#: 11410322A string of classic suspense films produced in England had earned Alfred Hitchcock a reputation in the United States, and his first American production, REBECCA, cemented his fame. Based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier, REBECCA was conceived to rival producer David O. Selznick's previous epic, GONE WITH THE WIND. This psychological thriller, however, derives its grandeur from Hitchcock's careful cultivation of the title character's haunting legacy. Joan Fontaine takes the starring role and narrates the story of her life as the second Madam de Winter. Fontaine, young and innocent, meets the worldly and sophisticated Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier) while vacationing on the Riviera. After a whirlwind romance and marriage, the two return to his opulent English estate, Maderley, where Fontaine begins to realize she is not entirely welcome in her new role. Chief among her detractors is housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson), who points out her every failing in relation to the previous mistress of the house, Rebecca. Fontaine is nearly driven to suicide by her inability to understand the mysterious legacy of the first wife. However, when a ship washes ashore, the mystery begins to unravel, setting the stage for the memorable and fiery climax.

Wonderful, suspenseful, classic movie. I have previously worn out or lost (due to loaning), two copies I had purchased on VHS. The book is wonderful, too. The movie very closely follows the story that is told in the book, Rebecca, by Daphne DuMaurier. Be sure to notice that the first name of the main character, the second Mrs. DeWinter; is never revealed!Read More
This suspense-filled classic is worth every moment of time it takes to sit through it. They don't make them like this any more and for good reason. The golden era of Hollywood is long past and so are her premium actors and actresses. Youngsters won't appreciate the on-going twists and turns of this story, let alone the time it takes to develop the personalities of the wonderful period-characters. But serious classic movie-goers will. So don't cheat yourself. Wander back in time to Manderley and allow yourself to be consumed in her mystery. Like I said... they just don't make em' like this anymore!Read More
