Film Review Short Shorts: Rebecca


REBECCA (1940) by Alfred Hitchcock: 9/10

24 Words or Less: Wonderfully dramatic yet intuitive portrayal of the unfolding mystery the 2nd Mrs DeWinter  marries into. Gripping, atmospheric, beautiful, brilliantly nuanced performance from Joan Fontaine.

Best bits: Classic 1940’s British accents. Phrases like ‘foul play’ and ‘old boy’ abound. ‘Have a look at The Times this morning; there’s a thrilling article on what’s the matter with English cricket.’
