I just found out this even existed last week. Ordered it from Canada and got it right away. Nice little production of Rebecca. Only an hour, plus original commercials. Reminded me a lot of the old Dark Shadows show. Black and White and occasionally the faces are squished, but very watchable. Based on the Hitchcock movie so there are no surprises and has the same changes that the original movie had from the novel. Nina Foch is a blond Mrs. Danvers and it was a little distracting at first, but got used to it right away. Lloyd Bochner is Favell. James Mason and Joan Hackett make very good Maxim and the new Mrs. De Winter. He is quite a bit older than her so it works. She is a little too old for the character, but it doesn't really matter. Very nice production for a "live" telecast. Of course not as good as the movie or the later Jeremy Brett/Joanna David version, but probably as good as the most recent version.
