See this film: Rebecca @ the Coolidge

The Master of Suspense got a raw deal in the lousy, recent biopic bearing his name, but the Coolidge Big Screen Classics series showcases his greatness with its screening of Rebecca (1940). In it, Joan Fontaine plays a fresh-faced ingénue whose fairy-tale marriage to a morose, elegant widower, played by Laurence Olivier, is disrupted by two women, one of whom is dead. Not only did it win an Oscar for Best Picture, but its spooky setting, the Manderley mansion, holds its own against the creepy Xanadu estate in Orson Welles's Citizen Kane (1941).
