Personal Quote:

I've heard people who've worked with Alfred Hitchcock say that it was not the most exhilarating experience, and, though I was only about fifteen, I felt something of that. Hitch had everything in his head before he went near the set: therefore one was rather moved around and manipulated, but, having said that, I liked him very much.

Trivia:

David O. Selznick saw her potential in Hitchcock's film Young and Innocent (1937) and avidly pushed for her to star in Hitchcock's next film Rebecca (1940). Hitchcock's impression she was too immature for the role and the sudden collapse of her studio, Gaumont British Picture Corporation, combined to help her lose the part to Joan Fontaine. See more »
