    BBC should release 1978 version

    Whilst this production is good-it is not a patch on the 1978 BBC production featuring Joanna David, Jeremy Brett and Anna Massey which is more faithful to the book and more subtle. Am currently asking the BBC to release this version on DVD.

    Scary!

    I read this book in 8th grade and I wanted to see the movie. It was really scary. I let my 12 year old sister watch it with me and she made me put it away after it was done. Mrs. Danvers is the most scary character that I have ever watched. I really do recommend this movie.

    One of my favorites.

    I had orginally watched this on Masterpiece theatre and was happy to get it on a CD. Rebecca is one of my favorite books. I also have the movie version. It is interesting to watch the different interpretations of the characters.

    A Great Remake

    Very enjoying remake of a classic story. Enjoyed this one more because of the details that were not in the Alfred Hitchcock version.

    Rebecca, Maxim & What's-Her-Name...

    This is a credible production of Rebecca. It is not the atmospheric gothic of Hitchcock's production but still worth a look. Charles Dance does a solid job as Maxim de Winter, playing it sharper & slightly more cruel than previous incarnations by other actors. Jeremy Brett played it more hauntingly. This production like the 1978 production plays it closer to the book than the 1940 film. The part of Mrs. Danvers is a sure-fire scene-eating part for Diana Rigg, Anna Massey & Judith Anderson. As a point of trivia, Emilia Fox who plays the second Mrs. de Winter is the daughter of Joanna David, who played the same part in the 1978 BBC film.

    superb production

    I found this production superb. I showed it at noon over a couple of lunchtimes in my office and it was univesally applauded. Hitchcock is great, but this is a fine version, adding depth to the treatment of the relationship between Rebecca's widower and his second wife. Highly recommended.

    jan

    Definitely not as good as the Hitchcock version, but not totally disappointing either. Would have been better if the flashbacks of Rebecca could have been portrayed in a different way than seeing only her mouth..(how odd!). Read the book..it's worth it.

    The Best Adaptation So Far

    I loved this adaptation (dare I say this?) even more than the original Hitchcock version. Rather than just making her a one-dimensional evil character, Diana Rigg presents a much sadder, more pathetic Mrs. Danvers. And I've loved Emilia Fox ever since seeing her in Pride & Prejudice and Coupling. A must see!

    It Just Is Not Right

    When I read the BOOK, Rebecca, I fell in love with the story. It was an awesome book! Then I sat down to watch the Mobil Theater version of the movie.... BIG MISTAKE! The people did not look right, they did not act right, they did not speak right.... It just wasn't what I wanted from the book. I have yet to watch the Alfred Hitchcock version, but I will ASAP... I sure hope it is better than this was.
