Expanded Hitchcock: Rebecca

4/11/2017; 39 minutes

Rebecca was Alfred Hitchcock's first American film. It has long been considered to be the director's most "feminine" project, given its subject matter and appeal to female audiences. Tania Modleski, author of the groundbreaking book The Women Who Knew Too Much: Hitchcock and Feminist Film Theory discusses both the history and continuing legacy of Rebecca, now regarded as a film that not only explores women's fears but also women's desire for other women. The discussion was moderated by Professor Patrice Petro, director of the Carsey-Wolf Center. Recorded on 02/28/2017. (#32132)
