Rebecca de Winter

I completely adore this book. du Maurier's detailed description of the
gardens in Manderley. It's so sweet, you can smell the perfumes of
flowers and hear the birds sing. The thrill of giving Rebecca's
details slowly one by one, makes one admire her, for she was a woman
with fine tastes, from the grandiose interiors of Manderley that she
designed, her lavish and epic parties, her 'loopy' handwriting, down
to her luxurious underpinnings. I find Rebecca really fascinating. 

But I still do adore Rebecca.

Anyway, Rebecca de Winter is still charming. The photos are of Vivien
Leigh in That Hamilton Woman in 1941. I completely think she is the
perfect actress for Rebecca. They have the same black hair, and a
penetrating gaze(in a good way). Vivien Leigh is absolutely stunning!

P.S. Vivien Leigh's centenary is near!

  1. I am torn between Vivien Leigh and Gene Tierney in Leave Her To Heaven. If you want a modern day Rebecca, it would have to be Angelina Jolie in Maleficent.
