Alfred Hitchcock
USA 1940
130 min

Rebecca deftly explores the tragic uncertainty of a woman living under the shadow of another. Joan Fontaine brings that woman to life in a performance that may have been helped by Hitchcock's cruel decision to tell her that everyone else on the film set hated her. Yet that is exactly the sort of feeling Fontaine had to bring to the screen when taking on the role of the second Mrs. De Winter, new wife of fabulously wealthy widower Maxim De Winter. She pulled it off wonderfully, from the cautious, naïve young girl at the start of the film to the uneasy, tormented wife at the end.
