I'm trying to watch all the movies that have won the Oscar for Best Picture. Next was the 1939 winner, Gone with the Wind, which beat Dark Victory, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, Love Affair, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Ninotchka, Of Mice and Men, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz and Wuthering Heights. I've already written my impressions of this movie, which you can read here.
The 1940 winner, Rebecca, was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starred Sir Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine. Rebecca is a haunting movie full of suspense, like a ghost story without the ghost.
