Product Description

Product Description

Rebecca [Blu-ray]

Amazon.ca

Rebecca is an ageless, timeless adult movie about a woman who marries a widower but fears she lives in the shadow of her predecessor. This was Hitchcock's first American feature, and it garnered the Best Picture statue at the 1941 Academy Awards. In today's films, most twists and surprises are ridiculous or just gratuitous, so it's sobering to look back on this film where every revelation not only shocks, but makes organic sense with the story line. Laurence Olivier is dashing and weak, fierce and cowed. Joan Fontaine is strong yet submissive, defiant yet accommodating. There isn't a false moment or misstep, but the film must have killed the employment outlook of any women named Danvers for about 20 years. Brilliant stuff. --Keith Simanton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Note: Get the Criterion DVD before it is too late! (It's supposed to go out of print on the 31st of December, 2003). While Hitchcock's masterpiece is still stunning after all these years, the DVD I watched, published by Anchor Bay, is pretty weak; the Criterion Collection DVD of "Rebecca" has much more in the way of extras and special features, which is half the appeal of getting a classic on DVD.
Anchor Bay's DVD only has a chapter selection and "start" on the menu. Not even closed captioning, which makes this DVD inaccessible to older or deaf fans.
Still, even a weak DVD presentation can't take away from such a beautiful film. A TV presenter recently introduced "Rebecca", by saying that Joan Fontaine was too pretty to be believable in the role of a plain girl. Missing the point! "Rebecca" is a story from the point of view of a scared, insecure heroine who believes the worst of herself and is always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Like the heroine of "Northanger Abbey," perhaps the gothic atmosphere here is really created out of her hopes and fears - "Rashomon"-style where each person sees a different thing. The book "Venus in Spurs" has most of a chapter devoted to "Rebecca," and how much this film and book relate to women who struggle through insecurity, despite being loved. (To say more might ruin the movie for first-time viewers).
Fontaine is, of course, very good, as is Laurence Olivier, who has scarcely *ever* been more handsome and commanding. Among the strong supporting cast is George Saunders and Dame Judith Anderson. While Anderson's usually singled out in reviews and hindsight, her obsessive maid could hardly be that malevolent, if the audience didn't feel so sympathetic towards Fontaine's sweet, mild Mrs. de Winter.

This review refers to the Anchor Bay DVD release of Rebecca.....

What do you get when you have a great work of literature by Daphne Du Maurier, combined with the cinematic skill of Director Alfred Hitchcock,combined with the extrordinary acting talents of Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, George Sanders and Judith Anderson? You get pure perfection on film. Combined that with the technology to take a movie made 62 years ago and make a transfer to DVD that looks as if it was made yesterday, and you have 2hr and 10 minutes of movie heaven.
The story begins in the South of France where a young, introverted woman(Joan Fontaine) meets wealthy widowerMaxim de Winter(Olivier) His wife,Rebecca, had recently died in a drowning accident and often he seems to be pensive and far off. They fall in love, marry, and go back to his home, an estate called Manderly. She is overwhelmed by the palacial grandeur, the huge staff of servants but mainly by the very prim but chilling head housekeeper Mrs. Danvers(Judith Andersson). The first Mrs. De Winter still seems to have a presence in the household that Mrs. Danvers keeps alive.
To say anymore will be giving away too much of this hauntingly chilling love story/mystery.However I must talk about this DVD.
Although not the more expensive version with all the extras(don't look for any with this one) this one gave us a beautiful picture, and great sound. Everything was bright and clean I saw things I had never seen before, and I have watched this movie dozens of times. The sparkling of the sequins on a woman,s gown,
the way the sun shone and the rain fell. This is a great transfer of a great film(Academy Award best Picture 1940). I personally didn't need all the extras for this one, I just enjoyed the film. There is another version by criterion with lots of goodies if you are interested in that though.
Which ever version you choose-- Enjoy "Rebecca" and the splendor of Manderly--Laurie

This is tied as my favorite romantic film noir-with Jane Eyre(starring Welles and Fontaine). The story is one of mystery. And I will not give a hint of the plot. But you have to see it. But the set up is simple. Man remarries and finds a niave young bride. But the groom vant seem to get over his dead wife. But that's where the fun starts. The acting is top notch, Olivier is at his best charming and high-cheek boned as ever, Fonatine using every facial muscle she has to convey her pain but ultimately it's JUDITH ANDERSON who rocks!! ... she is cold hearted in this film and you believe every minute of her. But Fontaine does her magic too! And let it be known that to draw that performance out of her Hitchcock told her the first day on the set that all the actors hated her guts and vice versa. This led to complete paranoia by everone and it's brilliant to witness on film. And the opening lines is movie history at it's best. Watch it love it and be shocked at what you will learn. Oh and it won Hitchcock's only best picture oscar! Well deserved over all his other movies in my opinion.

Rebecca ranks as my third favorite Hitchcock film (just behind The Man Who Knew Too Much and Vertigo). I remember when this film first came out and there was a buzz of anticipation to see this film (I'm really showing my age here). Obviously Alfred Hitchcock was a blip on the radar screen in regards to popularity (no one knew who he was), but David O. Selznick was a household name and a world acclaimed producer.
Looking back in retrospect, I truly believe this film was the launching point of Hitchcock's career. He went on to have one of the most glorious careers in Hollywood history. Although he never won an Academy Award Oscar and to my knowledge was never even nominated for the Best Director award; Hitchcock showed that he truly belonged in the top echelon of directors. Especially in his golden era: circa 1951 to 1959.
I remember vividly it was a very big deal to see his motion pictures in the mid 1950's. People would evoke his name with quality filmmaking and very well made motion picture productions.
It's ironic that the only motion picture of his, to my recollection, that was ever nominated for the Best Picture Award from the Academy actually won the award in 1940. This was due to Selznick's influence in the industry not the quality of the motion picture itself; and this is an important bit of information to know. The Academy disdained Alfred Hitchcock and Hitchcock films in general, but in 1940, again Hitchcock was a blip on the radar screen.
The reason why he lost with Rebecca was they didn't want to give the award to an Englishman. In particular an Englishman with Welsh roots (John Ford won best director in 1940). It was a long-standing tradition at that time that absolutely no foreigners were ever allowed to win any Major category Oscars.
