A young girl who is training to become a paid lady's
companion is traveling with her employer, staying in Monte
Carlo where she meets an older attractive widower, Maxim de Winter,
who seems haunted by his wife Rebecca's death. Circumstances
lead to a relationship between them, and when the girl's employer
suddenly decides to return to New York, she is given a
choise: New York with her employer or marriage to de Winter
and home to Manderley. However, Manderley is also home to the
housekeeper who was devoted to Rebecca, and Mrs. Danvers seems
determined to ensure things do not go well for the
newly-weds. The horrors of Rebecca's death are raked up when
her body is found, and revelations at the inquest are followed by a
new investigation. Once the truth is known, one more disaster
falls. The story is shown in flashback, as it starts with an
older Mrs. de Winter relaying a dream.
This BBC production was done in four parts, and stars Jeremy
Brett as Maxim de Winter, Joanna David as the second Mrs. de
Winter, Anna Massey as Mrs. Danvers, and Terence Hardiman as Frank
Crawley, with Vivian Pickles as Beatrice Lacey. The four
parts have a total running time of 200 minutes. THIS IS A
RARE VERSION, and it was reportedly du Maurier's favourite
adaptation of her novel.
This two-Disc set comes in a dual slim case with full colour
artwork. Both discs have full interactive menus, and each has
bonus feature information on the production and the cast
members. Discs ship in padded mailers.
