Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine97 - REBECCA based on a novel by Daphne du Maurier, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, a David O. Selznick picture starring Laurence Oliviier & Joan Fontaine... There aren't really words to describe why it's my very favorite movie. It simply resonates with every part of my being.
