When Philip Ashley's much-loved (and rich) cousin Ambrose dies, he is convinced that Ambrose was murdered by his new wife Rachel to inherit his wealth. But when he meets Rachel and falls in love with her, he knows that his suspicions must have been unfounded. But were they, or is Rachel just trying to use Philip to get at the estate Ambrose left to him instead of to her? And will she murder him next? Written by

Richard Burton's posthumously-published diaries reveal that he accepted the role of Philip in this film because it was being planned as a comeback vehicle for Greta Garbo under the direction of his friend George Cukor, whom he regarded as one of the great Hollywood directors. He claims that Garbo personally told him she would only do the film with him as her leading man. When negotiations with both Garbo and Cukor fell through (Garbo never made another film, and Cukor and Burton never worked together), Burton remained attached to the project, which was refashioned as a vehicle for Olivia De Havilland following her Oscar-winning success in "The Heiress". Burton claims that De Havilland was impossibly arrogant after her Oscar triumph, insisted on having sole above-the-title star billing, and also would not allow anyone to call her by her first name, only as "Miss De Havilland". He found this state of affairs preposterous and was rude about her for the rest of his life whenever the film (which he despised) came up in interviews. See more »
I haven't the time to explain. But I'm convinced now that Ambrose was right. She not only murdered him but she's done her best to kill me too.
Philip, you can't be serious.
Every word you uttered in the church that afternoon was the truth. And with that letter, I'm positive I can prove it.
But not murder surely.
How else could she marry her lover and still keep possession of the estate?

Thanks to an excellent cast, lavish production and a screenplay that remains remarkably faithful to the novel, Daphne du Maurier's romantic suspense novel _My Cousin Rachel_ becomes a very effective film. Ever-elegant Olivia de Havilland displays just enough cool reserve and mystery as the ambiguous title character, while the young Richard Burton is appropriately brooding as he falls under her spell even though he half believes her to be a murderess. Fans of gothic romance will enjoy the period setting and the Cornwall location as well as the suspenseful, surprising plot, which resolves in an ending you will want to talk about with everyone you know.
