This masterful psychological thriller tales the story of a rich aand handsome gentlemen called Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier) whose wife, Rebecca died tragically in a boating accident a year previously, yet he has had terrible trouble coming to terms with his grief.

However, whilst staying in Monte Carlo he meets a shy ladies companion who is also staying here with her stuffy employer and the two have a whirlwind romance, leading them to beleive they are in love with one another and marry very quickly.

Now the newly-weds return to Manderlay, his large country estate in Cornwall. Whilst here, the second Mrs. de Winter (Joan Fontaine) meets the hostile housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson).

Troubled by the fact that Rebecca still has a hold on the estate even after her death, and the strange behaviour of all the staff towards her makes her feel terribly out of place in her own home - until she makes a shocking discovery that shows the much adored Rebecca in a different light.
