Review: "The Uninvited" and "Rebecca"

Last night quietchris and I went to the (being restored) historic landmark Loews Theater in Jersey City, NJ to see 2 films.

The Uninvited (1944): All prints of this file had been lost but someone at Universal was convinced to have a new print made. This was the first showing of this print. It will now tour art houses around the country. The film is a horror/mystery. Very enjoyable.

Rebecca (1940): Hitchcock's first film made in America. His third film shows a lot of the themes we'll see him perfect in later pictures. Enjoyable with an ending that I never would have predicted.

Rebecca is one of my all time favorite films. I enjoyed reading the book (by Daphne du Maurier) a few times as well.

Rebecca is one of my favorites too! I also agree about the book. It is hard to find the DVD these days. I think I had to get mine from Hong Kong.

My dad picked up Uninvited in the early 1990s when it was on VHS. I remember liking it a lot.

It is the third film he made. The first one to be made in America.

Erm, more like the thirtieth! Let's see what IMDB says... ooh, not too far off.

Of the earlier stuff, I know I've seen (and would particularly recommend the ones in bold) Jamaica Inn, The Lady Vanishes, Sabotage, The 39 Steps, The Man Who Knew Too Much (later remade), Blackmail and The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog.

I guess the program guide they handed out had a typo!
