Rebecca [1940] [DVD]
picture
Features:-
"Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderley again..." From the first classic line of this unforgettable film, Rebecca casts its spell. David O. Selznick brought Alfred Hitchcock to the United States in order to give this adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's novel the proper atmosphere. The resulting film is a stunning marriage of their sensibilities. It paid off critically and financially as well. Like Gone with the Wind, which Selznick released a year earlier, Rebecca won the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Laurence Olivier stars as Maxim de Winter, who, reeling from the recent and unexpected death of his glamorous wife Rebecca, impulsively marries a young and adoring governess (Joan Fontaine). The new Mrs de Winter tries to fit into her role as mistress of the great house Manderley, but every step she takes is haunted by Rebecca's spirit. The ghost's brooding presence is personified by the insanely meticulous Mrs Danvers, brilliantly portrayed by Judith Anderson. As Fontaine's character begins to uncover the dark secrets of the de Winter clan, the house seems to take on a life of its own.

Passionate love and romance blend seamlessly with typically Hitchcockian emphases on guilt, sexuality and Gothic horror. The production values are stunning and the cast is excellent, down to the least of the supporting players. While Rebecca has enough surprises to captivate even the most jaded of moviegoers, it is also one of those rare films that improves with each viewing. --Raphael Shargel

Alfred Hitchcock: The Essential Collection [DVD]
picture
Features:-
Collection of four classic films directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 'Rear Window' (1954) follows photo-journalist L.B. 'Jeff' Jeffries (James Stewart)'s recuperation from a broken leg in his Greenwich Village apartment. The wheelchair-bound Jeff spends his time observing his neighbours through a telephoto lens, bestowing them with nicknames and growing familiar with their daily routines. Things become notably less light-hearted when Jeff becomes obsessed with the notion that Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr), who lives in the apartment opposite, has murdered his wife. Since he is unable to investigate himself, he seeks the assistance of his socialite girlfriend, Lisa (Grace Kelly), and the pair plunge into a dangerous amateur investigation. In 'The Birds' (1963) spoiled socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) falls in love with lawyer Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor) after they meet in a bird shop. Melanie pursues him across the water to his Bodega Bay home to offer him the gift of a lovebird. Inexplicably, she is attacked by a gull on her way back, the first of a series of attacks by birds that mass in their thousands overhead. Melanie, Mitch and the other inhabitants of Bodega find themselves facing a desperate struggle for survival in a classic tale of terror from the air. 'Vertigo' (1958) follows troubled San Francisco cop Scottie (James Stewart). When his fear of heights indirectly causes the death of a colleague, Scottie makes the decision to retire from the police force. Unfortunately, his next employment provides little relief from the phobic tendencies that haunt him. Hired by magnate Gavin Elster (Tom Helmore) to follow his wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak), who Elster believes to be a danger to herself, Scottie becomes bewitched by her to the point of obsession. After he saves her from a suicide attempt, Scottie and Madeleine become romantically entangled, but will the pair be able to steer clear of the destructive impulses that have bound them together? In 'Psycho' (196...

Jamaica Inn [DVD] [1939]
picture
Features:-
It's generally acknowledged that the Master of Suspense disliked costume dramas and Jamaica Inn--a rip-roaring melodrama drawn from a Daphne du Maurier pot-boiler, set in 1820s Cornwall--is about as costumed as they come. So what was he doing directing it? Killing time, essentially. In 1939 Hitchcock was due to leave Britain for Hollywood, but delays Stateside left him with time on his hands. Never one to sit idle, he agreed to make one picture for Mayflower Productions, a new outfit formed by actor Charles Laughton and émigré German producer Erich Pommer.

An innocent young orphan (the 19-year-old Maureen O'Hara in her first starring role) arrives at her uncle's remote Cornish inn to find it a den of reprobates given to smuggling, wrecking and gross overacting. They're all out-hammed, though, by Laughton at his most corseted and outrageously self-indulgent as the local squire to whom Maureen runs for help. Since his star was also the co-producer, Hitch couldn't do much with the temperamental actor. He contented himself with adding a few characteristic touches--including a spot of bondage (always a Hitchcock favourite), and the chief villain's final spectacular plunge from a high place--and slyly sending up the melodramatic absurdities of the plot. Jamaica Inn hardly stands high in the Master's canon, but it trundles along divertingly enough. Hitchcock fanatics will have fun comparing it with his two subsequent--and far more accomplished--Du Maurier adaptations, Rebecca and The Birds. --Philip Kemp
