She is SO bewildered. He is SO un-forthcoming.
What HAS happened with Mr. De Winter’s first wife, Rebecca?
I have to use capital letters, you see. This movie is highly melodramatic. It’s such a great story for it, too. Rebecca, who is the beautiful first wife. The current Mrs. De Winters, whose name I somehow never caught, is left to feel very inadequate and second class.
Rebecca must have been some act to follow, she thinks.
Of course, it’s totally different than she thought. And WORSE!
This is one of those great old classic movies. They over acted, I think because they were still getting used to being able to talk. Over acting was the way you did in the silent movies…
