Rebecca Learning Beyond the Classics
Learning Beyond the Classics
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
With Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, George Sanders
Not Rated, 130 minutes, DCP

Hitchcock’s first American project was based on Daphne du Maurier’s famous novel and won the 1940 Oscar for Best Picture—an auspicious start to working stateside. This romantic thriller tracks a young woman (Joan Fontaine) who marries Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier), a fascinating widower, only to learn she must live in the shadow of his former wife, Rebecca, who died mysteriously several years earlier. The young wife must come to grips with the terrible past of her handsome, cold husband while juggling the jealous, obsessed Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson), the housekeeper who will not accept her as the mistress of the house.

Free for ND, SMC, HC, and IUSB students.

Sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Classic Cinema.
