A best seller on publication, and never out of print in the eighty years since, Alfred Hitchcock's film version of 1940, with Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine, won the Academy Award for Best Picture and Netflix releases a version in October 2020 with Kristin Scott Thomas as Mrs. Danvers. Scott Thomas played the lover of The English Patient in the film adaptation of Michael Ondaatje's novel which refers to the intended use of an edition of Rebecca by Rommel and Almasy (the titular patient) as the key to a book code. Perhaps it's time you went to Manderley again?
