Dir. Alfred Hitchcock (USA, 1940) 130 mins

Joan Fontaine plays the unnamed narrator, a young woman who works as a companion to the well-to-do Mrs. Van Hopper (Florence Bates). She meets the wealthy widower Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier) in Monte Carlo, where they fall in love and get married. Maxim takes his new bride to Manderlay, his large country estate in Cornwall.
However, the mansion's many servants refuse to accept her as the new lady of the house. They seem to be strangely devoted to Maxim's first wife, Rebecca, who died under mysterious circumstances.
