Another Hitchcock classic!

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 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.

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. 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, 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)
