Is Rebecca (1940) more Selznick than Hitchcock? How does it work like a rehearsal for Vertigo? And how is the house a perfect metaphor for Laurence Olivier's Maxim DeWinter? Join Mike and Dan as they talk about Hitchcock's first American film and one that--while lush and "Hollywood"--has his fingerprints all over it. Vertigo, Shadow of a Doubt, and North By Northwest come into the conversation--but so do Rosemary's Baby and Raiders of the Lost Ark. So open that secret door, touch the underwear made by the nuns in the Convent of the Sisters of St. Claire, and give it a listen!
