First edition of du Maurier's masterpiece which was later made into the Oscar-winning 1940 film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. From the first chapter: Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. These famous opening lines later became one of the most famous opening words ever recorded in Alfred Hitchcock's Oscar-winning 1940 film of the same name. Rebecca is certainly Du Maurier's most famous novel and one that many others after her attempted to imitate, as a resurgence of romantic mystery novels came soon after its publication.
