Rebecca

I don't know many old movie buffs like me, certainly not my age, so forgive me if it means little to those of you reading, but I've just FINALLY seen Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca and I feel like a complete IDIOT I'd not gone out and seen it before. Wow. It's been mentioned in a hundred film history books and I'd heard all about Hitchcock and producer Selznick working on it, all about the scary Mrs. Danvers but I just hadn't ever seen it. Talk about Gothic and talk about a great ending. Not exactly happily ever after, more like "Damn, just deserts for everbody!" Bwahahaha! I highly recommend this movie to anybody who's into the Bronte sisters and/or film versions of Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre. I'd esp. recommend it to those who enjoy Laurence Olivier, Heathcliff himself.
