Film details


An adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s bestseller, Alfred Hitchcock’s first American film centres on a naïve young woman (Joan Fontaine) swept off her feet by aptly named aristo Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier) and taken to Manderlay, his Cornish mansion seemingly haunted by the spirit of his beautiful and sophisticated late wife, Rebecca.
