Rebecca 1940 Laurence Olivier Drama Mystery
Stars: Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, George Sanders
Rebecca, a shy lady’s companion, staying in Monte Carlo with her stuffy employer, meets the wealthy Maxim de Winter. She and Max fall in love, marry and return to Manderley, his large country estate in Cornwall. Max is still troubled by the death of his first wife, Rebecca. She died in a boating accident the year before. The second Mrs. de Winter clashes with the housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, and discovers that Rebecca still has a strange hold on everyone at Manderley.
In a line-up of great motion pictures, Rebecca stands as one of the giants. It is arguably Hitchcock’s greatest film effort, replete with jolting, slap-in-the-face plot twists and Gothic sets. Dark and moody, the film boasts Sir Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine in slam-dunk, dead on performances. George Sanders is the deliciously despicable Jack Favell, and Judith Anderson nearly steals the show as the eerie, obsessed housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers. A perfect “10”.
