Looking at the front, I thought it was a stand-in literature, but it turned out to be true love

I think this is a very unique Hitchcock work, the story revolves around a big villa (I think it's a castle...).

The female protagonist, who was originally nursing, suddenly married a rich man whose wife had died after a few tennis lessons, the male protagonist, and was taken back to Manderley Castle by the male protagonist. However, the operation method of the entire castle is carried out according to the habits of the previous wife, which makes the heroine very uncomfortable, and always feels that she has become a substitute for her ex-wife. The housekeeper has also been obstructing the relationship between the two.

Finally, the heroine discovers a surprising secret about the death of her ex-wife...

Reminder: There are several places in the story that are quite scary, it is recommended to pull people to watch together....

Ps: Why are the actors selected before so distinctive? The housekeeper, friends, and brother-in-law are all actors with a good memory.

    Hitchcock's angular sculpting thinking is that since you are already a male idol, "the audience may even faint at the thought of Clark Gable being killed", this strong empathy has been from the moment of debut. If it is established, then in the next plot, we will focus on showing the handsome, charming and affectionate or the gentle, courteous, respectful and frugal who walk in the same direction. This story will go to kitsch and boring. It must not be so! He must also have all kinds of negative elements that can inhibit the growth of good feelings, such as mysterious identity, mental illness, and even sinister inner heart, but the process of showing should be moderately vague and avoid being realistic, so as not to destroy the audience's empathy and anxiety towards him. , and in favor of the final surprise reversal—in either direction for good or evil. ...Also slightly embarrassing is that although "Butterfly Dream" received eleven nominations and won best picture and cinematography among them, and Oliver Fontaine Anderson was also nominated for his respective roles, it has been a supporting role since 1936. Since the award was first established, it is the only film that has won the best film but has all failed in the acting director and screenwriting awards.

    Poke the foggy opening, the mistress who never shows up but controls the fate of all the characters, and the shots that break the foreground.

Rebecca quotes

  • Mrs. Danvers: [as the second Mrs. de Winter runs into the room] I watched you go down just as I watched her a year ago. Even in the same dress you couldn't compare.

    The Second Mrs. de Winter: You knew it! You knew that she wore it, and yet you deliberately suggested I wear it. Why do you hate me? What have I done to you that you should ever hate me so?

    Mrs. Danvers: You tried to take her place. You let him marry you. I've seen his face - his eyes. They're the same as those first weeks after she died. I used to listen to him, walking up and down, up and down, all night long, night after night, thinking of her, suffering torture because he lost her!

    The Second Mrs. de Winter: [turning away in shame and shock] I don't want to know, I don't want to know!

    Mrs. Danvers: [moving towards her] You thought you could be Mrs. de Winter, live in her house, walk in her steps, take the things that were hers! But she's too strong for you. You can't fight her - no one ever got the better of her. Never, never. She was beaten in the end, but it wasn't a man, it wasn't a woman. It was the sea!

    The Second Mrs. de Winter: [collapsing in tears on the bed] Oh, stop it! Stop it! Oh, stop it!

    Mrs. Danvers: [opening the shutters] You're overwrought, madam. I've opened a window for you. A little air will do you good.

    [as the second Mrs. de Winter gets up and walks toward the window]

    Mrs. Danvers: Why don't you go? Why don't you leave Manderley? He doesn't need you... he's got his memories. He doesn't love you, he wants to be alone again with her. You've nothing to stay for. You've nothing to live for really, have you?

    [softly, almost hypnotically]

    Mrs. Danvers: Look down there. It's easy, isn't it? Why don't you? Why don't you? Go on. Go on. Don't be afraid...

  • Mrs. Danvers: She knew everyone that mattered. Everyone loved her.
