My Cousin Rachel

This Daphne du Maurier adaptation rather pales beside the earlier Rebecca, although the ingredients - death and a mysterious femme fatale - are not dissimilar. Burton was Oscar-nominated for his Hollywood debut as the young Englishman both distrustful of and attracted to de Havilland, the woman who may have fatally poisoned his foster father. Thick with studio atmospherics, but the resolution is weak.

first saw this film at Odeon Leicester Sq.London - as the film ended the organist came up from the pit playing the theme music from the film. Don't know what impressed the most - this or the film which for its time was very impressive.
