take me home
"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again"..... so begins the story of the young (nameless) wife of the great and tormented maxim de winter. what a smug and charming man he is. laurence olivier brought much sympathy to a role that lacked any connection to modern times as we know them. even in olden times his condescension would be questionable. well, live and learn. hitchcock worked his magic on daphne du maurier's novel, 'rebecca' and left us with one of the most enjoyable (if highly incorrect) films.
The Second Mrs. de Winter: I've been thinking...
Maxim de Winter: Now why would you want to go and do that for?
