REBECCA – Thursday 19th November

Hitchcock brought all his narrative skill to du Maurier’s haunting tale of a mousy young woman who meets the handsome, aristocratic widower Maxim de Winter in Monte Carlo and is swept off her feet by his whirlwind courtship. Following their wedding, they move to his Cornish estate Manderley, where the brooding Maxim once lived with his first wife Rebecca. Manderley is ruled over by the sinister housekeeper Mrs Danvers who is ferociously devoted to the memory of her dead mistress and undermines the new wife at every turn.
