Home / Now Showing / REBECCA / I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE
REBECCA, 1940, Walt Disney Pictures, 130 min. Dir. Alfred Hitchcock
Director Alfred Hitchcock’s Gothic romance asks the question: Did guilt-ridden, rich widower Laurence Olivier do away with his notorious wife Rebecca or not? And what secret does sinister, manipulating housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson) hold? As the widower’s second wife, a young Joan Fontaine attempts to unravel the mystery.
I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, 1943, Warner Bros., 69 min. Dir. Jacques Tourneur
Canadian nurse Betsy (Frances Dee) travels to the Caribbean’s Dutch-colonized Saint Sebastian Island to care for the comatose wife of sugar baron Paul Holland (Tom Conway). But Betsy’s new surroundings begin to have a seductive stranglehold on her – and not just because she’s falling in love with her employer – and the young woman is increasingly drawn into the island’s native voodoo cult. Another top-rate collaboration from Jacques Tourneur and Val Lewton, this atmospheric classic weaves the stark horrors of imperialism and slavery into a taut, terrifying masterpiece.
