* GrandeDame: Edythe van Hopper, who passes over into RichBitch territory; Beatrice, who is on the more intelligent and sympathetic end of the scale. Also Lady Crowen, who is rather ridiculous. Maxim's grandmother was one before becoming senile.

* HappyMarriageCharade: Maxim and Rebecca; they are thought to be a glorious couple even by the house servants, and neighbours for miles around speak of them, but their marriage is anything but. It is hinted that the same is true for Beatrice and Giles.

* AlphaBitch: Mrs. Danvers pulls a lot of the tactics despite being too old to qualify. Alice one of the maids that sneers at the narrator's modest and plain underwear fits better. Rebecca to the people she was openly nasty to.

* CreepyHouseKeeper: Mrs. Danvers. She is creepy in herself, with a deathlike appearance, and in her devotion to the memory of Rebecca such that she doesn't wash the clothes of Rebecca's scent and goes to her room every day.

* SuicideDare: The CreepyHousekeeper Mrs Danvers very seriously encourages the second Mrs de Winter to commit suicide. That was because she was passionately devoted to the ''first'' Mrs de Winter and felt the successor was taking her place. (Mrs Danvers was, as you may presume, a total psycho.) She is not impolite or emotional when she does it, which makes it all the more scary.

* [[WagTheDirector Wag the Producer]]: Hitchcock had to resort to some tricky measures to get around producer David O. Selznick's creative demands. Among others, he edited "in-camera" -- shooting only the scenes he wanted to include in the final cut so that Selznick couldn't recut the film if he didn't like it. This is why, for example, the film does ''not'' end [[{{Anvilicious}} with a giant "R" appearing out of the smoke]] from the burning Manderley, as Selznick originally envisioned.

A 1938 novel written by Daphne du Maurier (who also wrote the story that became ''TheBirds''). In 1940, Creator/AlfredHitchcock directed the film version, his first American project, which won the [[AcademyAward Oscar]] for Best Picture. It was the only Hitchcock film to win Best Picture, and Hitchcock didn't win Best Director--he never did, in fact, and had to settle for a lifetime achievement Oscar late in life. A musical version debuted in Vienna, Austria in 2006.

* AdaptationalVillainy: An unintentional consequence of the elimination of [[spoiler:Maxim's murder of Rebecca]] in the Hitchcock film is that Jack Favell's persecution of Maxim is now based completely on a falsehood.
