Another Hitchcock classic!

7 years, 8 months ago at Dec 9 2:05
I love this film because it is so dark, so mysterious, so tense and even quite lovely to watch as well. It is a very dark psychological story based on deep thinking mystery and puzzle solving. Rebecca is probably the classic of thrillers before Psycho was released especially because they are both Alfred Hitchcock films. Rebecca is one of those stories that you would get totally gripped with all th... read more

Though the only Hitchcock film to win a best picture Award, Rebecca remains over-looked by contemporary audiences, never to reach classic, essential Hitch status. Honestly, I'm not surprised. In its entire 130 minutes there is not a single, truly memorable scene. And great scenes are how we call movies back to mind. Sure we may vaguely remember liking a film or not liking a film, but ultimately ti... read more

A classic

Since I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check this flick. In my opinion, it is not one of his great masterpieces like ‘Psycho’, ‘North by Northwest’ or ‘Vertigo’ but it is still a very solid thriller nonetheless. It was actually a rather important movie in his career. Indeed, it was the first film he made in Hollywood and the only one that managed to win the B... read more

Description: 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.

Chief among her detractors is housekeeper Mrs. Danvers, 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 my ... (more)

" Joan Fontaine. Laurence Olivier. Creepy Judith Anderson. Delicately filmed. Intense Bernard Herrmann music. It's a great gothic thriller romance and a f&¤%& classic so I don't want to find anything bad with it. "

2017 - Movie Diary (18 movies items)

"It was a re-watch (for the umpteenth times - now because I just finished the book). It does not happen too often that a book is worse than the movie based on the book. In this case though, that's what happened exactly. The movie is so much tighter, so much more plausible - mainly and most importantly the heroin's behavior. She is much, much less submissive, 'wakes up' much earlier and she is becoming more independent and self-confident sooner that makes the movie so much better than the book. Th"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2016 (26 movies items)

" DVD- 2hrs. 11min. First Viewing Hitchcock's only Best Picture winner is masterclass in mood and tone. Rebecca excels in every department, though Olivier does ham a bit too much, and creates an effectively mysterious gothic-drama.
