• Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

  • USA, 1940, 130minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, George Sanders, Judith Anderson

How can love survive in a dark prison of memories, where a beautiful and mysterious dead woman still dominates the twisted lives at Manderley? Hitchcock found powerful material in Daphne du Maurier’s classic gothic novel and transmuted it into chilling elegance with the innocent Joan Fontaine, the enigmatic Laurence Olivier and the superbly frigid Judith Anderson as Mrs. Danvers. Like other Hitchcock films, a work whose art and artifice reward us anew in every viewing, where our own anticipations and memories converge with this powerfully haunted world.
