Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca"
Tonight @ the Charles Allis Art Museum
Jul. 9, 2008
Often the classic films the Charles Allis Art Museum screens are of the slightly obscure variety, but tonight’s selection is familiar to most film lovers: It’s Rebecca, the 1940 psychological thriller that won director Alfred Hitchcock his first—and, criminally, his only—Best Picture Oscar. Joan Fontaine plays a young woman who marries a suave Laurence Olivier, but finds that his manor is haunted by the memory of his deceased first wife.
