Rebecca Review

Rebecca is directed by Alfred Hitchcock and adapted to screen play from the Daphne du Maurier novel of the same name. It stars Laurence Olvier, Joan Fontaine and Judith Anderson. In Rebecca, cinematography is by George Barnes and music scored by Franz Waxman. After meeting and marrying ‘Maxim’ de Winter, the Second Mrs. de Winter, finds life at his English estate, Manderley, far from comfortable because the servants and the house serve to remind her of the first Mrs. de Winter, whose death remains a source of mystery. What did happen to the first lady of the house? Can this newly married couple survive the oppressive cloud that looms large over the mansion?

Rebecca, a Gothic emotional near masterpiece, Alfred Hitchcock’s first American film may seem a bit too serviceable at times, something he was also aware of himself, but the production values are high and the story is played out supremely well. Within the story we can find Hitchcock’s now famous trait of mistrusting Women, but in the main it stays the tragic tale of one young woman living in the ominous shadow of the previous Mrs. De Winter. Mood is often set as foreboding, with the director understanding the psychological pangs of the source material once the action switches to the de Winter home of Manderley. It arguably is a touch too long, and the restraint of Hitchcock, down to producer David O. Selznick overseeing things, stops it being a bit more unnerving than it should be.

The ending is a switheroo from the novel, and it almost derails the success Rebecca has achieved up to that point. And looking at it now it’s hard not to curse the Production Code for enforcing a big change to what was revealed in du Maurier’s wonderful novel. But Rebecca has survived the “appeasing” ending to stand the test of time for all the ages. It won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and Barnes also won for Best Black and White Cinematography, it was nominated for a further nine awards, including best director, best actor, best actress and best supporting actress. No nomination for Waxman, sadly, but his score is worthy of a mention for the evocative strains that sit nicely with the tone of the story. Rebecca, a hauntingly beautiful picture that’s acted and produced with consummate skill.
