Rebecca is about a young woman played by Joan Fontaine who while with her employer Mrs. Vanhopper, Fonatine meets Mr. deWinter (Laurence Oliver), Both Mr. DeWinter and fontaine devolp feelings for each other and the two soon marry. While Fontaine moves to Manderly (Mr. deWinter's estate/home) Fontaine soons learns about Rebecca Mr. DeWinte's late first wife. Fontaine soons learns that Rebecca still has a haunting present over Mrs. Danver (the maid) and Mr. deWinter. This movie is one Alfred Hitchcock's greatest thillers. I would suggest this haunting movie to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with out the blood.

Untypical Hitchcock

Rebecca is undeniably a great film, but this is not one of Hitchcock's best works. It is hard for me to classify this movie as directed by Mr. Hitchcock himself, because of the controlling David O. Selznick. Selznick would not Hitchcock be free with his work, and that...
Rebecca is undeniably a great film, but this is not one of Hitchcock's best works. It is hard for me to classify this movie as directed by Mr. Hitchcock himself, because of the controlling David O. Selznick. Selznick would not Hitchcock be free with his work, and that is why he later started his own production company -that failed. Alfred was more of an assistant director to the producer. There are still the some aspects of a Hitchcockian film, but this is not a complete Hitchcock movie.

    A FINE FILM TRAPPED ON A DEFECTIVE DVD

    I was a financially struggling student when REBECCA was first released on DVD by the Criterion Collection. At the time, $39.00 was a bit too much for me to splash out for a copy of one of my favorite films, and I was devastated when the company removed this title from their catalog before I had achieved greater financial security. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I found the new MGM re-release of this classic at my local Barnes & Noble store, and after purchasing the DVD I returned to my home eagerly anticipating an evening of watching Alfred Hitchcock at his best. I wish I could say that the experience lived up to the years of anticipation I felt regarding this moment, but I cannot. Instead of spending an evening in the eerie gothic world created by Daphne Du Maurier and Alfred Hitchcock, I was treated to a defective disc that that caused my DVD player to make a menacing grinding noise as the film attempted to play. Please note that I stated the film ¿attempted to play¿ (if one could actually use this phrase to describe the experience). As my DVD player continued to make a noise that was akin to a food processor attempting to gain the power of flight, the disc¿s play mode randomly skipped and stopped through various parts of film. Horrified, I removed the disc from my player and reached for another DVD (ironically also distributed by MGM) to find out if the fault lay with my home theater system (which had never before reacted in this manner). The other DVD played in the manner in which I have grown accustomed to viewing films (i.e. without scene skipping and an ear drum shattering grinding sound), so the problem I experienced can only be attributed to the geniuses MGM hired to create this latest release of REBECCA. At least I discovered that I was not the only person who purchased a defective disc after reading a review left by another unhappy customer. Hopefully MGM will recall these faulty DVD¿s and rectify the problems, but until such time I find myself wishing I had scrimped a bit on groceries during my student days and purchased a quality edition of this film.
