Another Hitchcock classic!

10 years, 2 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. 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)

" Joan Fontaine is great as a victim of the presence of an ex-wife and... well, gorgeous. ...and so begins the strong female lead Hitchcock so brilliantly played."

"First viewing - May 26th The few flaws Rebecca has are so minimal that only their cumulative effect prevented me from giving it a perfect score. The biggest issue being that while I can believe Fontaine's character is in love with Olivier's by the way she looks at him, there's never a clear reason provided to back up her feelings for him. His character even asks her why she loves him on a few occasions, and she never gives an answer. Clearly this is intentional, but it's still a little frustrat"

"Alfred Hitchcock's first American film, the exquisite Gothic Romance 'Rebecca' quite faithfully adapts Daphne du Maurier's novel of the same name in which an unnamed young woman becomes the second wife of aristocratic widower Maxim de Winter, only to find herself living in the shadow of her predecessor whose presence remains pervasive at the intimidating country mansion Manderley. With a strongly sympathetic central performance by Joan Fontaine, a reliably dramatic, if slightly hammy, turn by La"
