This wonderfully atmospheric tale, complete with swirling fog and spooky organ music, will take you away to the glamourous, yet lonely world of Manderley. Joan Fontaine gives a breathtaking performance, convincing us she really is crippled with feelings of inadequacy, despite being a flawless beauty. Judith Anderson is unforgettable as the sneering housekeeper. Laurence Olivier makes a properly snobbish and brooding Maxim, and manages to be the hero despite a very fatal flaw. The title character, Rebecca (the first Mrs. de Winter), is never seen, but makes her intimidating presence known. If you like gothic romances filled with 1940's elegance and lots of creepy atmosphere, you'll enjoy Rebecca.
One of the great thrillers of all time and a film that must be added to any Hitchcock fan's movie collection.
They stayed incredibly close to the novel, in fact they didn't really change anything, they simply just had to leave things out (which actually slowed down the plot so it's a plus for the movie).
I remember being so shocked by the end, it's got a good twist (better than some movies these days). I didn't care that it was black and white and that feminism wasn't around so much at that stage, Joan Fontaine just makes you believe her need to please and to fit in, especially in the awesome shadow of the former wife Rebecca, and her housekeeper Ms. Danvers, who the new Mrs. De Winter feels she must impress. You can literally feel Mrs. De Winter's suffocating need to please. Feeling empathy toward her is easy during this movie.
Watch it, watch it again, and keep watching it! You won't be disappointed, even after several views!
