“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again”¦”
So opens Hitchcock’s first American film, based on Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller, which not only won the Oscar for best picture but registered eleven nominations. Joan Fontaine plays the shy naive young bride of the aristocratic Laurence Olivier. She learns that she is living in the shadow of her predecessor, a shadow extended through the ever present threat of the guardian of her memory, the housekeeper Mrs. Danvers, played with chilling relish by Judith Anderson.
