Directed by Hitchcock but not strictly his film as it was a novel and was adapted and screen written by someone else.The first hour or so don’t feel like a Hitchcock at all,it all moves a bit slow and there’s not much tension building.The last 30 minutes is when it all comes together and then you can feel his directorial presence.The story is a little different from his usual but not by a long shot.In Rebecca there’s a strong love story not seen in his other stuff.The plot is a ‘paid companion’ (not a hooker)is hanging out in Monte Carlo and she runs into this guy.She goes on 3 dates with him over 3 days and at the end of it he proposes.I don’t think they even kissed before he proposed.Man it must have been easy to get a chick back then.Anyways he takes her back to his mansion where she finds out his wife drowned 1 year ago.One of the old helpers who is a blatant lesbian and was in love his old wife,Rebecca,hates the new wife.Not much else happens then for a long while,but then they find a sunken boat with another body inside,Rebecca’s, then there’s an inquest as to whether it was suicide or foul play.
