Rebecca has been tailored for stage and display a lot of timea, with the primary stage adaptation written by du Maurier herself in 1939.
The most well-known of those variations is undoubtedly from Alfred Hitchcock, whose film gained the Academy Award for Best Film.
In the movie, Laurence Olivier stars as Maxim de Winter, whereas Joan Fontaine stars as the brand new Mrs de Winter, whereas Judith Anderson performed the perpetually loyal Mrs Danvers – although her loyalty is clearly to the incorrect particular person.
This movie, nevertheless, took some main twists and diversions from the unique, primarily within the destiny of Rebecca herself.
This was as a result of Hollywood Production Code, who asserted the particular person answerable for the demise of Rebecca – if she had been murdered – must be punished for the crime, which was clearly not within the imaginative and prescient of the movie in response to Hitchcock.
