Rebecca 1940
A lonely man, a lovely girl... struggling against the secret of Manderley
Plot: When a naive young woman marries a rich widower and settles in his gigantic mansion, she finds the memory of the first wife maintaining a grip on her husband and the servants.
Story: A shy ladies' companion, staying in Monte Carlo with her stuffy employer, meets the wealthy Maxim de Winter. She and Max fall in love, marry and return to Manderley, his large country estate in Cornwall. Max is still troubled by the death of his first wife, Rebecca, in a boating accident the year before. The second Mrs. de Winter clashes with the housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, and discovers that Rebecca still has a strange hold on everyone at Manderley.
Did you know: Alfred Hitchcock and cinematographer George Barnes used a technique known as "deep focus photography" in this film. This is one of the few films to use that technique before Citizen Kane. Hitchcock had also used it in his film Downhill.
