Editorial Reviews

In his first American film, Alfred Hitchcock teamed up with producer David O. Selznick (GONE WITH THE WIND) to created a spine-tingling Romantic thriller that won an Academy Award for Best Picture. Based on Daphne Du Maurier's timeless novel, this dark, atmospheric tale of fatal obsession features Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine and Judith Anderson, as well as a haunting musical score by Franz Waxman. After a whirlwind romance, mysterious widower Maxim de Winter (Olivier) brings his shy, young bride (Joan Fontaine) home to his imposing estate, Manderley. But the new Mrs. de Winter finds her married life dominated by the sinister, almost spectral influence of Maxim's late wife: the brilliant, ravishingly beautiful Rebecca, who she suspects, still rules Manderley and Maxim from beyond the grave.

This is one of Hitchcock's best films, his first for Hollywood.
Robert J. Crawford
Despite much talk and disagreement as to who contributed what to it, REBECCA is definitely an Alfred Hitchcock film.

No director could have been more perfect to direct "Rebecca" than Alfred Hitchcock.

After all, Daphne du Maurier's classic tale of romantic suspense is a complex tale of murder and manipulation. So Hitchcock was in his element in this movie -- he gives it an elegance and glowing beauty, but there's still a raw sea of emotion boiling under the surface. And yes, Rebecca haunts the entire movie, never seen but always present.

A timid young woman (Joan Fontaine) is working as a paid companion in Monte Carlo, where she meets the brooding millionaire Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier). When her employer unexpectedly decides to leave, Maxim proposes marriage to the young woman, and they are quickly married before setting off to his ancestral estate of Manderley. It seems like a dream come true to the new Mrs. de Winter.

But as soon as she arrives, Mrs. de Winter is haunted by the presence of Maxim's first wife, Rebecca. Rebecca was beautiful, charming, accomplished, intelligent and stylish -- and everybody, especially the creepy housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson) compares them. But when a sunken ship is found in the nearby bay, the truth about Rebecca's life -- and death -- is finally revealed, and it could tear the de Winters apart...

"Rebecca" was the first movie that Alfred Hitchcock made in Hollywood, and in many ways it's his most conventional film. It follows the book pretty closely (except for some meddling by the censors), shot in a warmly-lit, elegant style that highlights the beauty of Manderley. Every time things become too comfortable, the presence of Rebecca wafts back in like a ghost.

Hitchcock is at his best in the weirder, more twisted parts of the story, such as when Mrs. Danvers takes Mrs.

Despite much talk and disagreement as to who contributed what to it, REBECCA is definitely an Alfred Hitchcock film. Producer David O. Selznick hands-on approach to producing definitely is evident, yet the film does not look entirely like your typical Selznick movie for that period. I would think this is director Alfred Hitchcock's doing. Yet again, it does not resemble the style that Hitchcock employed in his first American film, FOREIGN CORESPONDENT.
