#135: Rebecca

criterioncollection135ALFRED HITCHCOCK

1940

Despite a lifetime as an avid reader and a healthy reading list during my English degree, I didn’t read Daphne du Maurier until very recently.  Considering that I usually read the original novels that a lot of films I love are based on, particularly ones I enjoyed in my teens, it’s even stranger that I never got around to her masterpiece.  When I finally did, it was a great pleasure to find that it’s a wholly enjoyable page-turner that I ate up greedily despite having seen Hitchcock’s film version a million times and it’s not all that different.  For this episode, I’m joined by Catriona MacFarlane to discuss her opinion of the film and its main unnamed character.
