Friday Film Series: Rebecca (1940)


Beat the heat this summer with a series of movies at the library. One Friday a month come to the library and enjoy snacks with your friends in the comfort of the air conditioned library. Bring your own beverages or buy them from the Friends of the Library cafe.

This month’s movie is Rebecca. This is the story of a young woman who marries a fascinating widower only to find out that she must live in the shadow of his former wife, Rebecca, who died mysteriously several years earlier. The young wife must come to grips with the terrible secret of her handsome, cold husband, Max De Winter (Laurence Olivier). She must also deal with the jealous, obsessed Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson), the housekeeper, who will not accept her as the mistress of the house.
