CANCELED - L410 Summer 2020 Great Literature in Film: Rebecca
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, July 21–July 28
Instructor: Vera Wentworth
“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” Thus begins Daphne du Maurier’s masterpiece of romantic suspense, Rebecca. Underrated as a novelist, Daphne du Maurier was an accomplished author whose literary output includes novels, short stories, plays, and biographies, many having been transformed into famous films such as Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. Likewise, Rebecca was made into a film by Hitchcock, starring Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine in the major roles. The course will examine the novel and discuss how the film transposes the literary work to the screen.
