Trivia

Jean Anderson's role as Max's grandmother is cut completely from the version aired on PBS and subsequently released to home video in the USA.. See more »

Goofs

Emilia Fox has both ears pierced, twice, in each ear lobe, and this was clearly visible while portraying the character of the second Mrs de Winter, even though she only had one pair of earrings in at a time. In the 1920s piercing the ear multiple times was unheard of, and did not come into fashion until the 1980s. See more »

British TV Masterpiece
3 November 1998 | by (Solihull, England) – See all my reviews

This is just the thing to watch while curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of cocoa. Charles Dance is an absolute heart throb and young Emilia Fox's acting is outstanding! Jonathan Cake plays a convinvingly devilish Favell and Diana Rigg - well, what can I say?! This murder mystery suspense story is fantastic and a great favourite of mine. The lesbian innuendo between Mrs Danvers and Rebecca takes your breath away. This story must have been a shocker in its time - 1930's. I'd recommend it to anyone to watch it, you're guaranteed to be glued to your seat.
