Rebecca (1940) Film Review

Joan Fontaine

A+

DIRECTOR: Alfred Hitchcock
BOTTOM LINE: Perfection. “Rebecca” marked the arrival in Hollywood (courtesy of “Gone with the Wind”, producer Mr. David O. Selznick) of the man who was, or would eventually become, the greatest director in the history of cinema. Superb performance by Joan Fontaine who showed that she was every bit as talented as her sister, the great Olivia de Havilland. Hitchcock preferred casting gay actors in gay parts, whether it was Judith Anderson, Farley Granger, or Anthony Perkins. Music by Franz Waxman. Oscar-winning cinematography by George Barnes. Excellent work too by Sir Laurence Olivier, George Sanders, Reginald Denny, and Gladys Cooper.
