Alfred Hitchcock’s first foray into Hollywood filmmaking is a dreamlike adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 novel, starring Joan Fontaine as a young woman who believes she has found her heart’s desire when she marries the dashing aristocratic widower Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier). But upon moving to her groom’s baroque ancestral mansion. she soon learns that his deceased wife haunts not only the estate but the temperamental, brooding Maxim as well. This elegiac gothic vision took home the Academy Awards for best picture and best cinematography. (1940, 130 mins)
