Quick post for today. This morning, I watched Rebecca on Turner Classic Movies. Who knew the man whose name used to be synonomous with "let's take noir classics and colorize them" would start such a wonderful station?
Mrs. Danvers is one of my favorite characters. Insane yet efficient. I've known employers who kept disruptive employees around because they met their monthly quotas. She reminds me of that thought process. ("Well, yes, she's mad as a hatter, but there's always a morning fire in the morning room and an evening fire in the – well, actually, it's all over the house now.")
Even so, every time I see (and enjoy) Rebecca, the back of my head is playing a different movie:
Carol Burnett and crew, in one of their many fine moments.
Can't you just see Judith Anderson, narrowing her eyes at Joan Fontaine and spitting, "Rebecky!"
Yep. I can.
