Saturday night movie- REBECCA
Rebecca is a Protected content romantic psychological thriller movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It was Hitchcock's first American project, and his first movie under contract with producer David O. Selznick, starring Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine and Judith Anderson as main characters.
The reason Rebecca still grips lies in the fact that we can all see ourselves in Fontaine's role: everyone plunged into a new and unfamiliar milieu has felt her uncertainty and fear that they are the wrong person, in the wrong place.
<"Our marriage is a success, isn't it? A great success? We're happy, aren't we? Terribly happy?" Fontaine asks Olivier halfway through the film. He turns and strolls away from her. She continues, the note of desperate hope gone from her voice. "If you don't think we are happy, it would be much better if you didn't pretend." By now she's almost whispering. "I'll go away. Why won't you answer me?" And there, in those few seconds of speech, is the most human, heartbreakingly vulnerable person ever to appear in a Hitchcock film.>
The Hollywood Production Code could not allow a murderer to escape unpunished and so an accidental death had to be engineered.
The director had to remove the one murder that takes place in Daphne du Maurier's book– but still created a masterpiece of haunting atmosphere, Gothic thrills, and gripping suspense.
