Rebecca (1940, Netflix disc)

A self-conscious woman juggles adjusting to her new role as an aristocrat’s wife and avoiding being intimidated by his first wife’s spectral presence.

Watched the Netflix remake a while ago, not knowing it was a remake (never got into HItchcock). This was a very intricate,delicate, nuanced movie, and I dare say the remake did it justice. The style of acting did get to me at times (the “stare off into nothing while the camera is focused on you, for dramatic effect”) always bothered me. But, that’s how it was done back then.

I said it before, and I’ll say it again. About the only differences were the modern tweaks. The remake tried to keep true to the original as much as possible.

Loved both.
