Mystery Movie of the Week

Based on the novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, this week's feature is Rebecca - a dark tale of death, love, and jealousy! du Maurier was another well known female mid-century novelist who wrote many a moody mystery including Jamaica Inn (a real place in Cornwall where you can book a ghost tour). 

My parents had an old disintegrating copy of Rebecca among their books (image to the left is the same cover of their edition!) And after my mother described the plot to me it made its way into my hands for some great summer reading. The movie came much later...I'm not usually a fan of Olivier but he does make a good brooding Maxim de Winter!
